EUR-USD

: With the pair holding firmly below its invalidated strong support, its broader weakness triggered off the 1.5139/43 level continues to point lower despite two days of recovery starting Tuesday at 1.4216.

Our downside outlook on the pair remains valid while three key resistance levels outlined below and shown on the

chart

remain unbroken.

Initial resistance starts at 1.4446, followed by 1.4479, its Dec. 2 low and then 1.4625, its Nov. 3 low.

However, we continue to look to the downside below the aforementioned levels toward 1.4176, the Sept. 1 low.

Further down, support is situated at 1.4044, the Aug. 17 low, and then at 1.4000 and 1.4006, the important psychological level and the July 29 low, respectively.

This view is supported by the pair's weekly stochastics and relative strength index, which are bearish and trending lower, suggesting further downside weakness.

Having halted its medium-term upward trend started at the 1.2456 level in March and tumbled from the 1.5139/43 level through layers of support, the euro/dollar remains vulnerable to the downside, with 1.4176 seen as the next target.
