Daily Price Outlook

Despite the positive Eurozone PMI data for November, the EUR/USD pair failed to stop its downward trend and remained well offered below the significant 1.0800 mark. However, the decline in value can be attributed to the discouraging German data, which is putting pressure on the Euro. Concurrently, the bearish US dollar is seen as a key factor that could help in limiting the EUR/USD pair's further declines.

Eurozone PMI Trends and US Economic Dynamics

It is worth noting that the IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI, a measure that combines both the manufacturing and service sectors, continued to stay below 50.0 in November. This means a sustained contraction in private sector output across the Eurozone.

Specifically, the Eurozone Composite PMI for November stood at 47.6, showing a marginal improvement from the previous month's 47.1 and surpassing market expectations set at 47.1. Concurrently, the IHS Markit Services PMI increased to 48.7 from the earlier figure of 48.2.

Furthermore, the US Dollar is losing ground and hovering around 104.00, amid the decline in US Treasury bond yields. Recent economic data released on Tuesday indicated that the US ISM Services PMI for November surpassed expectations, surging to 52.7 from the previous 51.8.

On the flip side, JOLTS Job Openings experienced a reversal, decreasing by 617,000 to 8.73 million in October. This marks the lowest point since March 2021, according to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

German Factory Orders Decline and Future Market Focus

Furthermore, Germany's Factory Orders took an unexpected hit in October, as per data from the Federal Statistics Office. This suggests a setback in the recovery of the German manufacturing sector. Month-on-month, orders for goods 'Made in Germany' fell by 3.7%, contrasting with a 0.2% increase in September and missing the expected 0% reading.

On an annual basis, Germany's Industrial Orders plunged by 7.3% in the reported month, compared to the previous fall of 4.3%. This disappointing data is putting pressure on the Euro, resulting in the EUR/USD pair losing 0.08% for the day and trading at 1.0785 at the moment.

EUR/USD - Technical Analysis

The Euro hovers with a cautious uptick against the Dollar, registering a minuscule gain of 0.01%, to stand pat at the 1.0800 level. This muted movement belies the currency's attempt to carve out a recovery path amidst a complex economic backdrop.

EUR/USD's current technical landscape is demarcated by a pivot point at 1.0804, a bastion above which the pair may strive to ascend. The immediate resistance awaiting conquest lies at 1.0909, with further bulwarks erected at 1.0992 and 1.1097. Conversely, a descent would be cushioned by supports at 1.0723, 1.0611, and perhaps more critically at 1.0507.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) loiters at the 30 mark, teetering on the edge of the oversold territory, a potential harbinger of an impending rally should the Euro gain momentum. Complementing this narrative is the MACD, which, at -0.00042, flirts with its signal line, poised for a possible bullish crossover.

The 50-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) currently reads at 1.0816, a mere whisker away from the pair's price, suggesting a latent tug-of-war between the bulls and the bears.

Chart analysis paints a picture of consolidation with an inclination towards an upward break. Should the Euro sustain above 1.07930, a bullish outlook could be solidified, setting the stage for a test of loftier resistances.

In summary, EUR/USD's trajectory is cautiously optimistic above 1.07930, with the market's eyes trained on resistance levels for confirmation of the Euro's stamina in the near term.
