EUR/USD Continues to Coil Under 1.1450

The EUR/USD has entered a consolidation within a consolidation since last week. Looking at the smaller scale one on the 1H chart, we can see that price has found resistance in the 1.1440-1.1450 area. However, we are seeing higher lows, which makes this an ascending triangle pattern. There is a slight bullish bias, especially if price can hold above 1.1380. That will be the key event to look for during the 2/19 US session - whether EUR/USD can hold above 1.1380 for the most part. If it does, the mode is neutral-bullish. A break above 1.1450 would anchor EUR/USD into more of a bullish outlook.

Now, if price instead falls below 1.1360 and the rising speedline, the mode would be neutral-bearish, and there would be pressure towards some common lows around 1.1270-80, with strong risk of falling lower towards the 1.11 low on the year.

We can see the very neutral consolidation mode in the 4H chart, so any bullish or bearish bias seen in the 1H chart is going to be a fickle one. A break above 1.15 would be key and first open up the 1.16-1.1650 highs from a previous consolidation in mid-January. As noted above, a break below 1.1270 exposes the 1.11 low, and also revives the bearish mode with risk of extending below 1.11.
