EURUSD Technical Analysis

The Euro cleared a major resistance area this past week against the US dollar and closed above the 1.0800-20 levels. There is a channel pattern formed on the 4-hours chart of EURUSD, which is currently acting as a resistance and it looks like the pair may close above it and test the last swing high of 1.1050.

EURUSD chart

If the recent attempt to close above the channel resistance is a false one, then the pair may trade lower and test the 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart.

Any further losses may change the bias in favor of sellers and might take the EURUSD pair towards the 200 SMA (H4).

Spanish Industrial Output

Today, there is hardly any major economic release in the Euro Zone. The Spanish Industrial Output, which shows the volume of production of Spanish industries such as factories and manufacturing will be released by the National Institute of Statistics. The market is poised for an increase of 3.8% in November 2015, compared with the same month a year ago. The last reading was 4%, so there is a slight decline forecasted for November 2015.

Australian ANZ Job Advertisements

Today in Australia, the ANZ job advertisements, which presents the number of job advertisements in the major metropolitan newspapers and on the internet sites was released by the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ). The outcome was disappointing, as the jobs advertisements declined by 0.1% in December 2015, compared with the last rise of 1.3%.

The Aussie Dollar traded lower during the Asian session against the US Dollar, and tested the 0.6930-20 support area. It looks under a lot of bearish pressure and may continue trading lower.
