Price action on EUR/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has tentatively broken down below an uptrend support line extending from the late-April lows. This breakdown is significant, but does not yet place the pair in immediate jeopardy of breaking its overall uptrend.
This would occur only on a strong breakdown below the 1.3750 price region. Currently, the short-term bearishness in the pair is apparent, but price is still entrenched within a prolonged sideways consolidation, despite the trend line breakdown.
Further bearish follow through on this trend line break should target key support in the noted 1.3750 support/resistance region. To the upside, the 1.4335 resistance is still the key price level to watch, as a significant breakout above that level would confirm a clear uptrend continuation.
