EUR/USD Daily Analysis: August 20, 2019

The euro major pair faces pressure for the whole week but still, the dollar strengthened as the DXY index rises higher than the resistance. It was able to close higher than 98.25 daily level, which was the same level that kept the price lower in April and May and almost close to the two-year high.

Although the decline is not purely because of the EUR/USD pair as the euro is pressured against major currencies over the past week. Market's attention will then shift to the upcoming Fed meeting on Wednesday. For now, there is the PPI from Germany which is expected to come out higher than the forecast.

The levels of 1.1075 (upper) and 1.1118 (lower) were important yesterday. The previous level was kept as sellers entered the market prior to reaching the latter level, which also limited the recovery. The price movement shows weakness, especially in an attempt to test again the support level today.

Moreover, it is important to see how far the pair can go and if it will reach a fresh new yearly low prior to the Fed meeting tomorrow. Thus, it may not be wise to push the price lower in the current condition.

At a later session, we can expect resistance to continue around 1.1118 amid a rally. It needs to reach the level higher in changing the short-term direction of the pair.

A breakdown at 1.1075 opens the yearly low at 1.1027. If it successfully moves lower than 1.1027 today, then we might encounter some stops. In spite of that, the pair might have a difficult time to break the level and keep the flow without a specific driver to cause such movement.

There are not many events to look out for in the economic calendar prior to the expected Fed meeting on Wednesday.
