Price action on EUR/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has continued its bearish stance after breaking down below the long-prevailing uptrend in the pair about a week ago. This occurs after price hit a 15-month double-tested high around 1.5140.
Coming off that high with a clear shooting star candle, price subsequently broke down swiftly below the key uptrend support line extending from the March lows, and then below short-term support around 1.4800. Currently, price is exhibiting signs of a potential bearish trend reversal, with the 1.4450 price region serving as a major downside support target.
To the upside, 1.4800 should provide significant resistance within the context of a potential new downtrend for the pair.
