EUR/USD Analysis

I expected yesterday that the lower trend line holding the base of the triangle at 1.2356 would hold before the important news announcements due later today and tomorrow, but I was wrong. We had a bearish breakout below 1.2356 instead. The price has early this morning found local support at 1.2300. The good news is that there should be some good inflection levels above flipping from support to resistance providing opportunities to get short again if the price gets back to them then turns around.

Below us there is old support at 1.2275 which might provide a counter-trend long entry, although it might be we have already seen today's low at 1.2300.

EURUSD 12414

There are high-impact data releases scheduled today directly concerning both the EUR and the USD. Regarding the EUR, there will be a release of the Minimum Bid Rate at 12:45 London time followed by a press conference from the ECB at 1:30pm. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Unemployment Claims data, also at 1:30pm. It is likely to be volatile from about Noon.
