Justin Bennett mentioned the 1.1340 to 1.1380 resistance area for EURUSD last Saturday.
That’s the intersection of a trend line from October 2019 high and the pinnacle of an ascending channel from March twenty seventh of this 12 months.
Despite their quality efforts, EUR/USD buyers failed to break 1.1380 this week.
They saw the pair test the area several times, but it never closed above it.
Furthermore, a familiar pattern (at least to DPA Members) developed over the last few days that hinted at weakness.
The four-hour upward sloping flag above cautioned that buyers have been tiring.
That’s specifically real whilst you do not forget the repeated retests of channel guide highlighted in blue above.
They have visible comparable intraday patterns like this earlier than, and nearly they all have resulted in a pass lower.
The circulate lower this time left EUR/USD trying out the 1.1230/40 support area
It’s the extent Justin Bennett pointed out on Saturday as the one sellers had to break to send the euro even lower toward 1.1150.
As of this writing, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.1230 at the dot.
If we see a convincing weekly close underneath 1.1230, it will open up drawback objectives next week, together with 1.1150 and perhaps 1.0990.
But both way, this latest selloff from 1.1340/eighty tells him that the euro is respecting the ascending channel he drew last Friday.
Does it suggest a top is in place?
Now not pretty, however it does imply that buyers are those with something to prove.
Until they clear that 1.1400 resistance place, the EUR/USD is at risk to pullbacks like the one we saw this week.
And any pullbacks underneath 1.1400 places the euro ever toward breaking the twenty-year trend line Justin Bennet had his eye on for months.
