“Looking at the daily chart, we see that EUR/USD extended gains above the barrier of 1.400 and the 50% Fibonacci retracement, which resulted in a rally to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement and the brown resistance line. Taking into account these resistance levels and the current position of the indicators (a negative divergence between the CCI and the exchange rate, the Stochastic Oscillator above the level of 80) we think that reversal is more likely than not.
Very short-term outlook: bearish
Short-term outlook: bearish
