- EUR/USD main bear trend is on hold since mid-August where EUR/USD established a bottom at the 1.1300 figure.
- This Friday, EUR/USD bears drove the market down to 1.1630 support after a failed breakout above 1.1700 resistance. This is the first down day in five and EUR/USD bears will need to continue hammering down the market below 1.1530 key support in order to reclaim a strong bearish directional bias.
- EUR/USD is still trading above its 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving averages while the RSI and Stochastics indicators are trading down from overbought condition. All-in-all suggesting that the market might need to consolidate more before setting up for the next directional move.
- A bear breakout below 1.1530 would invalidate the bullish bias.
