  • EUR/USD failed to print a close above 1.19 on Thursday. 
  • Daily chart candlesticks and RSI signal bull exhaustion. 

The EUR/USD pair has failed three times in the last five days to close above 1.19. 

On Thursday, the currency pair clocked a high of 1.1916 but settled at 1.1876. Similar price action was observed on Wednesday and last Friday. 

The repeated rejection above 1.19 validates the overbought reading on the 14-day relative strength index and suggests the ebbing of bullish momentum. A similar message is being echoed by Thursday’s spinning top candle – the one with long wicks and a small body. 

As such, the pair could chart a notable pullback in the short-term. Key support is located at 1.1696 (Aug. 3 low), which if breached,  would invalidate a higher lows setup on the daily chart and yield a decline to 1.1422 (June 10 high). 

A close above 1.19 is needed to restore the bullish view.
