EURUSD Strong Support at 1.11

EURUSD correction from the December highs at 1.12238 stalled around   the support at 1.11 A move that has cancelled the positive momentum for the pair as it breached below the 200-day moving average.

Bears in order to seize control need a credible break below the 1.11 support.  In that case the next support will be provided by the 50-day moving average at 1.1090. Bears will gain traction below that level and a test of the 100-day moving average at 1.1062 would be possible.

On the upside initial resistance for EURUSD stands at 1.1120 the daily top. A break above the 200-day moving average might refuel theee bullish momentum with an attempt to 1.1164 the high from January 6th.
