EUR/USD extended its losses on Thursday as the dollar strength index inched higher for the second consecutive day. The price action seems to be slightly surprising as the latest economic data pointed towards a much softer stance by the US Federal Reserve.
Consequently, the euro to dollar rate fell to 1.091 which was the fresh weekly low for the forex pair. The pullback comes after the pair rose to its highest level in almost four months earlier this week.
The latest technical analysis reveals that the ongoing pullback could be a good buying opportunity if EURUSD holds a key trendline on its chart. This trendline is the bottom of the ascending channel which is shown in the following chart.
As long as the DXY index remains below 105.7 points, the EUR/USD forecast will remain bullish overall unless the pair gains acceptance below the ascending channel. A major support on the daily timeframe is the 200 MA around 1.0816.
