EUR/USD

4 hour

Important numbers are expected to be released today in the US. The Non Farm Payroll (NFP), average hourly earnings, and unemployment rate will be announced and they typically impact the US Dollar and other financial instruments. The reaction of the USD to the news remains to be seen but from an Elliott wave perspective, price has probably completed a wave 5 (purple/green) within wave 3 (blue).

The EUR/USD strong bearish momentum did not break the support trend line (blue), which makes a bullish extension still possible. However, price needs to break above the previous top of 1.2070 to make the scenario more likely. For the moment, an ABC (red) correction is more probable. The Fibonacci levels of wave B (red) could in that case act as resistance levels for a potential bearish turn.
