NEW YORK (
) -- The EUR-USD pair turned sharply lower on Wednesday and further declines could follow.
The pair is now correcting its recovery strength set from 1.3837 to the 1.4536 level. However, while the pair holds above 1.4242 and 1.4142, the risk remains toward the July 3 high of 1.4578. An eventual violation of that mark will target the June 7 high of 1.4696.
Further out, the 1.4938 level, its 2011 high, comes in as the next upside target. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher supporting this view.
Conversely, the risk to our analysis will be a return to the 1.3837 level where a decisive break will resume its short-term weakness toward its March 6 low of 1.3751. Further support lies at the psychological barrier of 1.3700.
