In January 2015, the EUR/USD pair moved below the major demand levels near 1.2100 where historical bottoms were previously set in July 2012 and June 2010. Hence, a long-term bearish target was projected toward 0.9450.
In March 2015, EUR/USD bears challenged the monthly demand level around 1.0570, which had been previously reached in August 1997.
Later in April 2015, a strong bullish recovery was observed around the mentioned demand level. However, next monthly candlesticks (September, October, and November) reflected a strong bearish rejection around the area of 1.1400-1.1500.
Again in February 2016, the depicted price levels around 1.1400-1.1500 acted as a significant supply zone during the bullish pullback.
That is why, recent bearish rejection was expected around the depicted supply levels (note the monthly candlesticks of May, August, and October 2016).
In the longer term, the level of 0.9450 remains a projected target if the current monthly candlestick maintains its bearish closure below the depicted monthly demand level of 1.0570.
The long-term outlook for the EUR/USD pair remains bearish as the monthly chart illustrates. Bearish persistence below 1.0575 is needed to pursue this bearish scenario.
In September 2016, temporary bullish breakout above 1.1250 was expressed again, but evident bearish pressure was applied on the EUR/USD pair on September 16.
Closure below 1.1250 (supply level 1) maintained enough bearish pressure and enhanced the downside momentum toward the price level of 1.1000 (key level 1).
On November 9, an obvious bearish break of the 1.1000 price level occurred (Shooting Star daily candlestick). Moreover, further decline below 1.0825 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) was expressed.
Bearish persistence below 1.0825 allowed a further fall to occur at 1.0570 (demand level) where bullish rejection and a valid BUY entry were expressed on November 24.
The price level of 1.0825 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) constituted a recent supply level which offered a valid SELL entry on December 8. Stop Loss should be lowered to 1.0600 to secure some profits.
Bearish persistence below the depicted demand level around 1.0570 allows further bearish decline. The first bearish target would be located around 1.0220.
On the other hand, the price level of 1.0570 constitutes a recent supply level to be watched for a SELL entry during the current bullish pullback above 1.0500.
