Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for US Dollar/Euro (USDEUR) as at May 22, 2020

Friday's trading range has been 59 pips (0.65%), that's slightly below the last trading month's daily average range of 65 pips.

The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly lower than usual for USDEUR.

One bullish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the White Candle. The last time a White Candle showed up on May 6th, USDEUR actually lost -0.33% on the following trading day.

Buyers managed to take out the key technical resistance level at 0.9152 (now S1), which is likely to act as support going forward.

While the Dollar is currently in a short-term downtrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bullish.

Further selling might move prices lower should the market test April's nearby low at 0.9059.

Among the five market conditions that our pattern recognition engine identified today, the statistics for the Price Action based market condition "Closed above last periods high" stand out. Although it is usually interpreted as bullish, it has actually shown to be bearish for USD/EUR.
