After a long decline in the first half of November, the EUR/USD pair moved to an upward correction. In the first two trading weeks of November, the price fell by more than 150 points and reached a key support level of 1.0995. Yesterday, the instrument began to grow within the correction, leaving a narrow downward channel. EUR was supported by favorable data on industrial production and the growth rate of the EU economy. In addition, the pair was positively affected by the growth in demand for the oversold euro.
Support and resistance
In the short term, an upward impulse with the targets at 1.1040, 1.1055, 1.1090 is expected. From these resistances, the price may reverse and begin to decline. It is worth noting the recent strengthening of the US dollar against all major currencies: data on key sectors of the US economy are positive, and investor interest is growing. The European currency is unlikely to be able to recover significantly, which means that it is worth counting on a soon resumption of the decline.
Technical indicators confirm the forecast for the fall in the medium term: on the daily chart, high volumes of short MACD positions remain, Bollinger bands are still directed downwards.
Support levels: 1.1015, 1.0995, 1.0960, 1.0925, 1.0880.
Resistance levels: 1.1040, 1.1090, 1.1120, 1.1175, 1.1240.
Short positions may be opened from the current level with the targets at 1.0925, 1.0880 and stop loss of 1.1090.
