EUR/USD - Opening The Way for a Decline Towards its October Lows
EUR/USD declined sharply yesterday. The break of the support at 1.2614 calls for a test of the recent lows at 1.2501. An hourly resistance now lies at 1.2639 (intraday high).
In the longer term, EUR/USD is in a downtrend since May 2014. The break of the strong support area between 1.2755 (09/07/2013 low) and 1.2662 (13/11/2012 low) has opened the way for a decline towards the strong support at 1.2043 (24/07/2012 low). As a result, the recent strength in EUR/USD is seen as a countertrend move. A key resistance stands at 1.2995 (16/09/2014 high).
