Daily Euro Currency Technical Analysis

Looking at the above daily MT4 price action chart, as mentioned above, the euro currency has found support at the 23.6 percent Fibonacci level and the short-term 20 day simple moving average. Last week, the EUR/USD currency exchange rate saw a high price point of 1.1670 around the 38.2 percent Fibonacci level.

The euro currency then fell lower towards the 23.6 percent Fibonacci level where it found some support. The 20 day simple moving average also looks bearish and the technical indicators, the 14 day relative strength index (RSI) and the MACD histogram while trending higher are directionless.

There is immediate technical support lining up at the 23.6 percent Fibonacci level near 1.1615. The 20 day simple moving average is just below this level. A daily close below the 20 day simple moving average opens the door for the yearly low price level at 1.1523 with the key static support level at 1.1470 then coming into play.

On the upside, a sustained close above 1.1670 should open the door for the EUR/USD currency exchange rate to challenge 1.1720 with the technical resistance of 1.1840 the coming into focus next.
