EURUSD on Friday rose 0.35% to 1.10147. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2023-07-28, the pair dropped -0.99% or -109.8 pips lower.

Looking ahead on Monday, EURUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.09434.

For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 1.09222 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 1.08296 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 1.11497 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 1.09434 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of July, EURUSD is up by 0.98% or 107.3 pips higher.
