What can we expect from EURUSD today?
EURUSD on Thursday dropped -0.39% to 1.06672. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.
Updated daily direction for EURUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 1.06429 (S1).
Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.07254 or trades above daily pivot 1.06841. Break above could target R1 at 1.07085. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.06429 (S1) and daily low of 1.06598 as support levels. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 1.06598 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that EURUSD is mixed as compared to the prior week.
