  • EUR/USD’s daily chart shows a failed bullish breakout. 
  • The pair risks falling to support below 1.17.

EUR/USD fell 0.40% on Tuesday and closed back inside a falling channel represented by trendlines connecting Sept. 1 and Sept. 21 highs and Sept. 8 and Sept. 25 lows. 

Essentially, the bearish channel breakout confirmed on Oct. 5 has been neutralized by Tuesday’s decline. 

Chart analysts consider failed breakouts as powerful bearish signals. As such, the currency pair now looks south and could test support at 1.1696 (Oct. 2 low). 

Tuesday’s high of 1.1808 is now the level to beat for the bulls. At press time, the pair is trading in a sideways manner near 1.1733.
