Possible Bounce in Store for Euro

By -

Further to my recent posts here and here, the EUR/USD Forex pair has reached a potential (double Fibonacci) support level between 1.1205 and 1.13, as shown on the following Weekly chart. A possible bounce is in store for the Euro.

Failure to begin stabilizing at this level and reclaim the major resistance level between 1.19 and 1.2125 (seen pre- and post-2007/08 financial crisis) could send the Euro plunging down to the 2000 lows of 0.8227. I can’t imgine that’s what Mr. Draghi has in mind with his ECB QE policy announcment earlier today…although stranger things have happened.

The Battle of the Middle Band

I posted a couple of charts on twitter last night showing the very interesting setup here on ES and SPX. The setup on SPX is the falling wedge that I’ve been showing in recent days and the double bottom with a target at 2054. I mention on the chart that the target area would be a 61.8% retracement of the falling wedge and that might be the top of the rally there, if indeed this is just a rally. SPX 60min chart (posted last night on twitter):
