The market was pushed lower after breaking below major demand levels around 1.2100 and 1.2000 where historical bottoms were previously hit back in July 2012 and June 2010.
The EUR/USD pair has lost almost 850 pips since the beginning of 2015. Moreover, EUR/USD bears have already pushed the price slightly below the monthly demand level of 1.0550 (established on January 1997).
The previous monthly closure had a negative impact on the EUR/USD pair. However, April’s monthly candlestick came as a bullish engulfing candle on the chart.
In the long term, a bearish breakout of the monthly demand level at 1.0550 should not be excluded as the long-term breakout is projected with a target at 0.9450.
However, a bullish corrective movement towards 1.1500 may be executed if May’s monthly high (1.1465) gets breached first (bulls have recently failed to step above price level of 1.1435).
After such a long bearish rally (which started around the levels of 1.1300), bullish rejection took place at 1.0570 (monthly demand level).
Multiple ascending bottoms were established around the levels of 1.0470, 1.0550, and 1.0850. These levels corresponded to the daily uptrend depicted on the chart.
Further bullish pressure was observed until bearish rejection was applied around 1.1400 (Fibonacci Expansion 100% on the H4 chart – near the depicted daily supply level).
Fixation below the level of 1.1300 (the lower limit of the H4 channel) caused a quick bearish decline towards 1.1140 by the end of last week.
This week, the market opened around 1.1000 which comes to meet the depicted daily uptrend. That is why, another ascending bottom is expected to be established around the current price levels
Daily persistence above 1.1150 must pursue towards higher targets. An initial bullish target would be located at 1.1300.
