EUR/USD dips below long term uptrend support – confirmation

11

EUR/USD continues falling relentlessly. The last swing lower already sent the pair below the long term uptrend support line. The drop below the line can be seen in the daily and hourly charts. However, we have already seen a false break in mid-October, and confirmation is needed.

If the pair remains below these levels over the weekend, we could receive the needed confirmation. Here are the charts:

On the hourly chart, we see a similar picture:

This line worked as resistance from June. When the pair broke above the line in September, it turned into very stubborn support.

The last leg down came after the ISM Manufacturing PMI came out better than expected. We haven’t seen too many positive US figures lately.

This contrasts the horrible European data released this week.

In addition, FOMC members seem relatively hawkish, with Bullard playing down the importance of tapering. Is he implying that tapering is coming in December?
