What can we expect from EURUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?
EURUSD on Friday rose 0.54% to 1.10072. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising in oversold zone. For the week ending 2023-08-04, the pair dropped -0.07% or -7.5 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, EURUSD looks bullish as the pair ended higher after Friday trading session.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.10459 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.09880. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.09110 or 1.09302 (WS1) as immediate support level. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 1.09110 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of August, EURUSD is up by 0.09% or 10.4 pips higher.
