The pair will meet support at 1.1033 the daily low which if breached will encourage more bears to join the action, something that is possible to lead the price towards our next support zone, at 1.1026 YTD lows, before an attempt to 1.10 psychological mark.
Intraday traders might enter a long position if the pair manages to break above the 1.1059 today’s top targeting a break above 1.11. A stop loss at 1.1033 must also be placed for reducing the downside risk as that will signal possibly a move down to 1.10 area.
A short position targeting the YTD low may be initiated if the pair crosses below 1.1033, with a stop-loss order at 1.1059. All in all, bears are in control and if EURUSD breaks below 1.1033 the downward move might accelerate down to 1.1026 yearly low and then at 1.10.
