Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) Digs into Support
Going along with the US Dollar’s check of a key resistance level, EURUSD has started to grind around a key support zone. This is the same zone that’s been in-play to varying degrees since last November; and this runs from Fibonacci levels at 1.1187-1.1212. The fact that the pair is holding on to this support as USD strength came rushing back last week highlights the attractiveness that EURUSD can carry for short-side USD scenarios. Similar to what was seen in the first week of June, a run of USD-weakness creates a squeeze scenario for long-term shorts. But, as fresh highs are created, stops are taken-out, and this helps to reset sentiment a bit as price action gyrates-higher: As discussed in yesterday’s webinar, if the pair can take out the 1.1500 handle the likely large number of trailed stops that sit above that price, the pair may finally be able to take-out the 1.1000 psychological level.
So, at this point, EURUSD can remain as one of the more attractive short-USD candidates; and not necessarily because of any positive appeal around the Euro, but more related to the elongated down-trend that’s vulnerable to squeeze scenarios.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 50.73. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 220 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -54. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
