Technical Analysis of EUR/USD

Above the resistance level of 1.0050 against the US Dollar, the euro began a new wave of recovery. The EUR/USD exchange rate rose above 1.0120 to enter a positive territory.

The pair was able to stabilize above the 1.0150 level and the 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart (red, 4-hours). The crucial slide from the 1.0614 swings high to 0.9955 low was broken by the pair, which also broke the 38.2 percent Fib retracement barrier.

Currently, resistance is present close to the 1.0285 level. It is close to the pivotal slide from the 1.0614 swing high to 0.9955 low, which is represented by the 50% Fib retracement level.

The pair could move higher if it can break over the next significant barrier, which is located close to the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours) at 1.0300. On the other hand, if EUR/USD is unable to rise over 1.0285, it may react negatively.

The 1.0185 level serves as a temporary support. If the pair drops below 1.0160 and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), they may continue to fall toward 1.0120. Any more losses might push the pair closer to the 1.0050 area.

When the GBP/USD pair managed to settle above the 1.2000 and 1.2050 resistance levels, a significant rebound wave was initiated.
