EURUSD Technical Analysis | Dollar under pressure as the Core CPI is cooling down
BY Janne Muta|November 14, 2023
EURUSD Technical Analysis - US inflation for October showed signs of cooling, with the headline consumer prices rising at a slower pace of 3.2% (3.3% expected, 3.7% prior). The Federal Reserve is expected to maintain the current rate level in its December meeting and cut rates four times, starting in May 2024 .
This slowdown in inflation, particularly in core prices, has reduced recession risks and positively boosted market confidence. With the US 2 year and 10 year yields dropping sharply the EURUSD has rallied substantially after the CPI announcement.
Summary of This EURUSD Technical Analysis Report:
- The weekly chart indicates an upward trend in Euro USD, potentially reaching 1.0920, with possible resistance at two market levels and a trendline; a fallback to 1.0640 is also possible but given the strong upside momentum and declining US yields it seems less likely.
- EURUSD has been trending upward since October, following a strong rally after a lower than expected US core CPI reading today. The currency pair is now above the 50-period moving average, indicating a reversal from its previous downtrend, with key resistance at 1.0945 and support at 1.0716.
- EURUSD is trading within a bullish trend channel on the 8-hour chart, with potential to reach 1.0880 if current momentum continues. Should it retrace, key support levels at 1.0756 and 1.0706, the latter aligning with the 20-period moving average and channel low, EURUSD might attract buyers.

EURUSD Technical Analysis
Weekly EURUSD Technical Analysis
The weekly chart shows the Euro USD trending higher after it broke above the base high at 1.0640 two weeks ago. Above 1.0640, we could see the market trading to 1.0920 or so. This is where two market structure levels and trendline resistance are closely aligned. Should the current momentum fail before this, a retest of 1.0640 could take place.
Daily EURUSD Technical Analysis
EURUSD started creating higher swing lows after the market attracted buying at 1.0448 in October. Following the lower than expected core CPI reading from the US, the market rallied strongly.
This was a natural continuation after we saw the market creating higher swing lows above the 1.0448 level. With the market trading strongly higher above the 50-period moving average, EURUSD technical analysis indicates that the market has reversed the previous downtrend and is now trending higher.
Nearest key price levels
The nearest major resistance level on the daily chart is at 1.0945, while the nearest support level on the daily chart can be found at 1.0716. Should the level fail to provide support in the event of the market retracing lower, we could see EURUSD moving down to the next support level at the latest higher swing low (1.0656).
EURUSD Technical Analysis, 8h Chart
If the upside momentum is sustained, the market could trade to the trend channel high at 1.0880 and then perhaps to 1.0920 on extension.
However, in the case of the market retracing lower, EURUSD could retest one or more support levels inside the bullish trend channel. The first one is a penetrated swing high at 1.0756, and the one below that is a market structure level at 1.0706.
Our EURUSD technical analysis reveals that the latter support level coincides with the 20-period moving average and is closely aligned with the bullish channel low. Therefore, in the case of the market retracing to this level, we could see buyers re-engaging with the market again.
