EUR/USD Price Analysis – Price Holds Steady Over 1.07800 on Easter Monday

  • 2 mins read ●
  • Published:
eur usd 1

The EUR/USD is sitting right above the $1.078 support level today, while technical indicators suggest the pair is headed lower.

Key Points

  • Last week, the USD gained momentum versus most currencies on strong GDP data.
  • Today, the pair has consolidated for most of the Asian and London AM sessions.
  • The $1.078 level currently holds the price as a critical support level, with the pair’s short-term outlook appearing to be bearish. 

EUR/USD Daily Price Analysis – 01/04/2024

Last Friday was relatively flat for the EURUSD, with the pair only rising by a meager 0.05%. As of writing time, the pair has lost about the same amount today, currently trading at $1.07882.

The Dollar benefitted from a largely positive economic data week last week. The QoQ GDP was higher than expected, and the unemployment claims report was positive. On Friday, Personal Spending was also reported to have risen considerably. In addition, Governor Chris Waller made hawkish remarks, saying there was no need to rush rate cuts. 

Across the Atlantic, German retail sales fell by an unexpected 2.7% YoY in February and 1.9% MoM. French CPI data and consumer spending both came out worse than expected. Also, several ECB officials have made remarks supporting President Christine Lagarde’s comment about a potential June rate cut. 

When you compare all of these side by side, the European economy isn’t performing as well as its American counterpart at the moment, which may heap downward pressure on the EURUSD.

Technically, the outlook for the EURUSD has gradually turned bearish, with the price dipping well below the 50 EMA and the RSI falling deeper beneath the midpoint (as seen in the daily chart below).

EUR/USD Intraday Price Analysis – 01/04/2024

The Asian and London AM sessions have mostly seen sideways movement, with the EUR/USD price just above the 1.07841 support level. If the price falls below this key level, the monthly low of 1.07682 will be exposed. If that doesn’t hold the price, we might see the price tumble further down to the 1.7362 support level.

On the upside, the 1.08053 resistance level is the one to watch. And beyond that, we have the $1.08349 (0.618 FIb level), $1.08555 (0.5 Fib level), and $1.08760 (1.08760 FIb level) resistance levels to challenge.
