EUR/USD Technical Analysis

After struggling to clear the 1.2350 level, the Euro started a fresh decline against the US Dollar. EUR/USD broke the 1.2250 and 1.2200 support level to move into a short-term bearish zone.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair broke a couple of important supports near 1.2220 and 1.2200. There was also a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 1.2245 on the same chart.

A low is formed near 1.2064 and the pair is currently consolidating losses. The first major resistance on the upside is near 1.2100. The main resistance for a fresh increase is likely to form near 1.2180 and the 200 SMA.
