EUR/USD: technical analysis 16.01.20

Current trend

The EUR/USD pair begins today’s trading with slight bullish bias and testing the resistance 1.11576. Judging by the downward reversal of the Stochastic, a downward correction is possible soon, but the general upward trend is still maintained. If the "bulls" manage to raise the rate above the level of 1.11629, the growth can continue to the area of 1.11694. This area will be a key level for the buyers in the short term period. There is a chance of a downward rebound, while its breakout would allow the growth to continue to the 1.11847.

Alternative scenario

The pullback below 1.11476 will be a sign for the downward correction formation and let the price fall to the 1.11389. The downward trend will be restored after the price is set below the level of 1.11336, which is the middle line of Bollinger Bands. In this case, the next targets of sellers will be the level of 1.11237-1.11037.
