EURUSD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that EURUSD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.1804, 1.1797, 1.1914 and 1.1963 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 20 day average, which is 8.2 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 16 out of the past 30 days.
