The union of European states does not have the same underlying language or the same underlying culture.
Without such the Euro has an inherent emotional weakness to stay together in times of strife.
The euro market has competed at least its first leg of counter-trend correcting its new long term bear market that began in 2008. Else it has completed a cyclical correction. In either case, it is about to start a tradable downtrend. A move to the 1.81 to 1.94 zone is likely.
The featured chart, hit the low side on LongTerm, resistance, which is coincidental with EWT resistance ghat runs from point 3 to 4 in the left-hand chart window. Along with the failure to get above that price level, the market failed to hold above I-T resistance shown on the daily bar chart.
The long term market peaked on panic buying and has an I-T high pivot with a TE#3, calling for the change of trend (COT). The daily bar also shows the “Alpha Trend Tracker” rolling over giving an S-T sell signal. The S-T volatility modeling supports the high to low range expansion, so the trend sell signal should get S-T carryover.
From a tactical point of view, CT will be looking for a low-risk entry point for bear trades.

Intermarket relationships are ephemeral, valid for the short to intermediate-term at best. The imputed market wisdom is when gold goes up US dollar declines and while the greenback advances the precious metals go down. But since late September both markets are in a decline; and both into a decline of a major COT time window according to our MarketMap change of trend dates. With today being a key date, November 30.
