Daily Price Outlook

The EUR/USD pair is maintaining its upward trajectory above the 1.0942 level, with a neutral intraday bias at present. The persistence of resistance at 1.1148 suggests the potential for further decline. A support level is found at 1.0832 in case the pair drops below 1.0942.

EUR/USD Market Analysis: The Euro displays a recovery pattern within an adjacent triangle below 1.1000 amid concerns over Italy's tax policy.

During the early hours of Wednesday's European session, EUR/USD has managed to recover some of its weekly losses. Consequently, the currency pair finds itself within a symmetrical triangle formation that has persisted for two months. This uptick in sentiment can be attributed to positive news and data releases from China, contributing to a slight improvement in overall market sentiment.

The recent surge in market performance is bolstered by an increase in factory-gate inflation figures from China, offsetting concerns arising from a rise in consumer prices. Furthermore, Bloomberg's reference to the Biden Administration's optimistic news has provided a source of comfort for EUR/USD traders. According to the report, the US plans to specifically target Chinese companies that derive more than 50% of their revenue from industries like quantum computing and artificial intelligence (AI).

It's worth noting that unexpected tax implications for banks' windfall profits in Italy, coupled with global credit rating agencies downgrading US financial institutions, are influencing risk perception and consequently affecting the EUR/USD price. Apprehensions related to potential economic downturns in the UK and China's decelerating economic growth seem to resonate on a similar wavelength, adding complexity to the market outlook.

EUR/USD - Technical Analysis

The EUR/USD pair made an effort to surpass the 1.0955 threshold but has commenced the day on a bullish note, influenced by the Stochastic indicator's positive outlook. Some interim gains are anticipated before the pair potentially resumes its downtrend.

The persistent downward pressure exerted by the EMA50 underscores the prevailing bearish correction trend, a sentiment further reinforced by the recently observed double top pattern on the chart.

In light of the current analysis, the bearish trajectory is projected to continue in the near term, with a key target pinpointed at 1.0880. It's imperative to note, however, that any breach above the 1.1030 level could negate this bearish forecast, redirecting the pair towards its primary bullish trajectory.
