EURUSD moves to new lows in early US trading – ForexLive

Moving away from 100 hour MA after trading above and below today

The EURUSD is moving to a new low for the day in early US trading. Even so, the pair is in a narrow 26 pip trading range (it was 23 pips before the modest expansion). The next target is the low from Friday at 1.15407 and then the low for the year from last week at 1.15284.  The German ZEW fell to the lowest level since the start of the pandemic today which has helped support the downward trend today. 
Moving away from 100 hour MA after trading above and below today 

Yesterday, the pair stayed below the falling 200 hour MA at 1.15769 keeping the sellers more in control.  Ultimately, the buyers will need to extend above its 200 hour moving average if they want to take back more control. The price is not traded above its 200 hour moving average since September 14, nearly a month ago. 

The pair is also trading back below the 200 week MA at 1.15689. Recall the price has traded above and below the 100 and 200 week moving averages. The 100 week moving average is at 1.1608 this week. The high price yesterday could not extend up to that higher moving average level. Today the price is moving away from the lower 200 week moving average (more bearish). The next key target on the weekly chart is the 50% midpoint of the range since the 2020 low at 1.14918.
