Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) tumbles into potential wider retracement
EUR/USD fell below the $1.1422 mark, seemingly paving the way for a wider retracement for the pair.
The break through $1.15 last week sparked a rise in the likeliness of an upside surge after this pullback. Despite us currently having broken into a lower low, we saw something similar in late December which ultimately turned out to be a retracement of the wider rally from $1.127. As such, this is expected to be a similar situation, with the pair likely to find support before long.
Look out for the 76.4% retracement level ($1.1364) as a potential reversal point. A break below $1.1301 would be required to negate the uptrend that is currently in play.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.15.
The projected upper bound is: 1.15.
The projected lower bound is: 1.12.
The projected closing price is: 1.14.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 14.0794. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 47.55. 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 110 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 -79. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 4 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 1 period(s) ago.
