EUR/USD Bullish Momentum After Hitting 38.2% Fib At 1.17 Aims At 1.2250

The EUR/USD is building a bullish reversal at the 38.2% Fibonacci support level around 1.17. The bearish correction is therefore probably over. 

This article reviews what price patterns and targets to expect.

The EUR/USD bears pushed price action lower from a high at 1.2348 to a recent low around 1.17. But now bullish daily candlesticks have appeared at the 38.2% Fibonacci support level. 

  • The bullish bounce at the 38.2% Fib could confirm the wave 4 (purple) pattern mentioned before.
  • Waves 4 are usually shoppy and lengthy so wave 4 (purple) is probably not completed as yet. A bearish ABC or ABCDE (pink) pattern will probably emerge.
  • A bearish ABC (grey), however, does seem to complete the first wave A (pink).
  • A bullish bounce (green arrows) is therefore likely to test the deep 88.6% Fibonacci level or previous top. A bullish ABC (grey) pattern is expected.
  • A bearish bounce at the resistance (dotted orange arrows) could confirm the end of the wave B (pink).
  • The wave 4 remains intact as long as price stays above the 50% Fib. A deeper pullback places it on hold (yellow circle) or invalidates it (red circle).

On the 1 hour chart, price action is already showing signs of reversal for a while, as mentioned in my EUR/USD and GBP/USD video analysis.

  • The divergence pattern (purple) lines between price action and the oscillators on both the 1 and 4 hour charts indicated the need for a bullish retracement.
  • A strong impulsive move up was seen after price hit the critical 38.2% Fib at the 1.17 support zone (daily chart). 
  • The bullish impulse was either a wave 1 or A and likely to see more upside.
  • The bullish breakout above the resistance trend line (dotted orange) was a first indication that the downtrend was over… 
  • … But the 5 wave pattern (blue) that emerged indicates more upside as price action is building a larger wave 1 (orange).
  • The wave 2 retracement (orange) respected the 61.8% Fibonacci level and the bullish uptrend channel (green lines). 
  • Price made a strong bounce up again, which is probably a wave 3 (orange).
  • Price action is expected to either bounce (blue arrows) at the support zone (green box) or make an immediate bullish breakout (green arrows) towards the Fibonacci targets. 
  • Bull flag patterns could appear and breaks above those flags could confirm the uptrend continuation.
