Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for EUR/USD for December 17, 2018


On the weekly chart, the EUR/USD pair is demonstrating a high-probability Head and Shoulders reversal pattern where the right shoulder is currently in progress.

On the Daily chart, the pair has been moving sideways with slight bearish tendency. Recent bearish consolidations have been maintained within the depicted daily movement channel since June 2018.

On November 13, the EUR/USD demonstrated recent bullish recovery around 1.1220-1.1250 where the lower limit of the channel as well as the depicted demand zone came to meet the pair.

Bullish fixation above 1.1420 was needed to enhance further bullish movement towards 1.1520. However, the market has demonstrated significant bearish rejection around 1.1420 few times so far.

The EUR/USD pair remains under bearish pressure below 1.1420. Thus, the pair remains trapped between 1.1420 and 1.1270 until a breakout occurs in either direction.

If early bearish breakout below 1.1270 is achieved on lower timeframes, a quick decline should be expected towards 1.1150-1.1100.

On the other hand, bullish fixation above 1.1420 invalidates the bearish scenario allowing a further bullish advance to occur towards 1.1520 and 1.1610.
