- Yesterday, US President Donald Trump and the Congress reached a deal on the extension of the debt limit and federal spending caps for two years that would avert a government default later this year. The USD got stronger on the announcement. Combined with the priced-in dovish statement by the ECB later this week, the news pulled EUR/USD lower. On H4, EUR/USD has tested the support at 1.1187. If the euro continues its downward movement, the further fall will be limited by the 1.1176 level. After that, the next support will lie at 1.1165. In case of recovery, the pair will face the 1.12 level. If it is broken, we will pay attention to the 1.1211 level and the next resistance at 1.1220.

In this situation, we will see the reversal towards the 1.2475 level. The next key resistance will be placed at 1.2495. (50-period SMA). If bulls are excited enough, there will be a possibility of reaching the border of the downward trendline at 1.2515.
