EUR/USD Technical Analysis

Notably, the current price of EUR/USD is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 122.3 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone down 7 out of the past 10 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.

A final note on correlations: over the past week, EUR/USD has been most correlated with EUR/CAD — not terribly surprising, given that EUR is in both currency pairs. Alternatively, regarding pairs with the lowest correlation to EUR/USD? Well, look no further than USD/HKD if you’re focused on just this past week, or USD/CHF for a look at a broader, two week window.
