EUR/USD Daily Price Forecast- The Euro Pair Gets Underway Recovery

Nikhil Khandelwal

During the Asian trading session, the EUR/USD appeared slightly rebounding from the previous day’s massive losses. The pair had reached last day near the lowest of 1.1227 levels amid weak Eurozone PMI figures and substantial US Retail numbers. However, the down-fallen euro pair was trading 22 pips above the last day’s low, easing further selling pressure.

As today is Good Friday, most of the operating business firms and other institutions maintain a holiday on that account. Despite that, we have a couple of euro events lined up for the day which may have a significant impact on the pair’s movements. Hence, the EUR/USD investors must keep a closer watch on these events.

On the USD Index front, the morning trading pattern containing fewer candlesticks revealed strong disinterest among the greenback traders. The US Dollar Index that computes the greenback against the six major rivals was 0.72 percent down today’s opening.

The EUR/USD bounced off touching the strong previous resistance line of 1.1229 levels. Earlier the day, the pair was drifting coinciding with the lower boundaries of the Bollinger Bands (BB) as a part of last day’s downward rally. From there, the pair made a U-turn crossing the center line of the BB was moving to its upper region. This action develops signs for a slow recovery of the prior losses incurred. Nevertheless, the significant 100-days SMA and 200-days SMA stood above the EUR/USD showing leftover sustained downtrend effect.
