05.08.202218:07 Forex Analysis & Reviews: EUR/USD to exit its range soon?

The EUR/USD pair was trading in the red at 1.0155 on the H1 chart at the time of writing. Technically, the price is still trapped within a narrow range. As you already know from my analyses, only a valid breakout from this pattern could bring trading opportunities.

Fundamentally, the Eurozone economic data came in mixed today. On the other hand, the US economic figures came in better than expected, that's why the EUR/USD pair crashed. The NFP was reported at 528K above 250K expected, the Unemployment Rate dropped from 3.6% to 3.5%, while the Average Hourly Earnings rose by 0.5% exceeding the 0.3% growth forecasted.

EUR/USD Extended Range!

Exchange Rates 05.08.2022 analysis

EUR/USD failed to reach and retest the 1.0269 signaling exhausted buyers. Now, it could approach and reach 1.0119. In the short term, we cannot exclude further sideways movement.

1.0269 and 1.0119 are seen as strong obstacles. Only a valid breakout through these levels could bring great trading opportunities.

EUR/USD Outlook!

Dropping, closing, and stabilizing below 1.0119 and below the 1.0100 psychological level may activate more declines and could bring new short opportunities with a potential downside target at 1.0000.
