Technical analysis of EUR/USD for October 5, 2018
Eurusd is trying to break out above and out of the downward sloping wedge pattern. Price has short-term support at 1.1480 and resistance at 1.1545. Today we expect the announcement of the US Non-Farm Payrolls one hour before the US markets open, so this should increase volatility.
Red lines – wedge pattern
Red line – bullish divergence
EUR/USD could still make one more new lower low towards 1.1420 today before the big upward reversal we are expecting. Key resistance that if broken will make me forget the new lows scenario is at 1.1590. Only a break above this level will make me confirm that the low is in and that the entire decline from 1.1815 is over. I’m biased to the upside favoring bullish positions. Longer-term view is bullish where I will be risking a break of 1.13 (stop) for a move towards 1.19 and higher.
