  • PRICE: 1.2168 @ 17:38 GMT Jan 22
  • SUP 1: 1.2054 Low Jan 18
  • SUP 2: 1.2011 High Sep 1 and a former breakout level
  • SUP 3: 1.1976 50.0% retracement of the Nov 4 - Jan 6 rally
  • SUP 4: 1.1902 2.0% 10-dma envelope

EURUSD is firmer and testing the 20-day EMA at 1.2165. The week's recovery is seen as a pause in the current downleg and further short-term weakness is likely with the pair still in a corrective bearish cycle. This follows the recent sell-off from 1.2349, Jan 6 high. A resumption of weakness would open 1.2011, Sep 1 high next and 1.1976, a Fibonacci retracement. Above the 20-day EMA, 1.2230 marks a firm resistance, Jan 11 high.
