EUR/USD Technical Analysis: US NFP send EUR/USD below 1.1600 figure

  • EUR/USD bears took the lead after the release of the Non-Farm Payroll which came better than expected at 201K vs. 191K expected. EUR/USD bears are eager to resume the main bear trend but a clear break below 1.1530 key support will be needed. 
  • EUR/USD is currently trying to break below the 100 and 200-period simple moving averages while the market is creating a triangle (blue lines). 
  • In the short-term, the currency pair has a neutral to bullish stance as long as it stays above 1.1530. The reaction at 1.1530 will be crucial in determining the short-term trend. A bear breakout below the level would likely lead to an acceleration of the main bear trend towards 1.1508 (June 8 low).
