Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) continues falling in descending channel

The Euro-to-Dollar exchange rate is trading at 1.1139 at the start of the new week after falling about 0.9% in the week before.

The U.S. Dollar remains an outperformer in global FX with investors noting the U.S. economy continues to firmly outperform global rivals, a view confirmed by last week’s knock-out GDP data. The Euro is meanwhile hampered by the Eurozone’s seemingly entrenched economic underperformance, with traders expressing disappointment that the region’s largest economy – Germany – has yet to shown signs that it is making a concrete turnaround.

The Euro has other risk factors to weigh, including concerns about the threat of U.S. tariffs on the European auto industry, uncertainty ahead of EU and Spanish elections.

For EUR/USD, the technical picture is now decidedly bearish after last week’s declines. The pair continued to fall within the descending channel after briefly touching the upper borderline. It will probably continue some more in the absence of any signs to the contrary. There is still some ground to cover before it hits more substantial support at the lower channel line at 1.1075.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.13.

The projected lower bound is: 1.11.

The projected closing price is: 1.12.
