On September 2, EUR/USD declined to the current 1.1909 -1.1713 trading zone reflecting a weaker bullish sentiment. This week, the price resumed falling eyeing a test of the low end of the aforementioned trading zone.

It is worth noting the price/RSI bearish divergence as the former created a higher high, while the latter created a lower high, signaling a possible reversal of the upward trend.

A daily close below the low end of the zone at 1.1713 reflects even weaker bulls and could encourage bears to take the initiative and possibly press towards the monthly support at 1.1621 (October 2018 high).

On the flip-side, a failure in closing below the low end of the zone could reverse the current move towards the high end of the zone at 1.1909.
