EUR/USD technical outlook: Bulls finding strength at key levels

EUR/USD 4-hour chart outlook
EUR/USD 4-hour chart outlook

The EUR/USD price rallies to 1.1760 and is testing July lows (now resistance). It will be a key region to watch daily as sellers seek to lock in at 1.1700 after failing to break 1.1704-11 support earlier this week.

In other words, sellers tried to break the support below 1.1704-11 but failed. Technically, they have maintained some semblance of control below 1.1750-55, but if buyers manage to break this range, sellers will see a loss of momentum.

The price has been able to move above the 20-period SMA on the 4-hour chart. The average daily range has been 71% so far. It signals room for more gains. However, the volume bars are very low. It means the upside may lose traction on the ways as it could only be a corrective wave that may meet fresh selling near 1.1800.
