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 towards 0.9450.
In March 2015, the EUR/USD bears challenged the next 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.
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 current price levels (note the monthly candlesticks of May, June and August).
In the long term, the level of 0.9450 will remain a projected bearish target if the current monthly candlestick comes to close below the depicted monthly demand level of 1.0570.
On the other hand, note that a monthly candlestick closure above 1.1400 invalidates this bearish outlook on an intermediate-term basis (low probability).
Accordng to the monthly chart, the long-term outlook for the EUR/USD pair remains bearish. Bearish fixation below 1.1000 is needed to enhance this bearish scenario.
On July 27, the EUR/USD pushed above the price zone of 1.1000-1.0950 (previous consolidation range). Hence, further bullish advance towards 1.1250 was executed as expected.
Temporary bullish breakout was expressed above the price zone of 1.1250 (supply level 1). However, significant bearish rejection was seen on August 26.
On September 6, evident bullish recovery and a temporary bullish breakout above 1.1250 were expressed, but on Friday evident bearish pressure was put on the pair.
The current bearish closure below 1.1250 (supply level 1) should be defended to maintain enough bearish pressure and enhance the bearish side in the market. Initial bearish targets are be located at 1.1050 and 1.0990.
On the other hand, the price levels of 1.1250 (Supply Level 1) and 1.1400 (Supply Level 2) constitute significant supply levels to be watched for valid SELL entries. S/L should be set as daily closure above entry level.
