Analyzing the EUR-USD H4 chart, the price has been trending within an ascending channel, indicating a short-term bullish trend. The last 10 candles of EURUSD’s H4 chart exhibit a mixture of bullish and bearish sentiments, with five green candles and the recent bullish candles suggesting a potential upward continuation. The Bollinger Bands have slightly contracted, yet they remain relatively wide, reflecting ongoing volatility. The price oscillates around the middle band, indicating consolidation within the broader uptrend. The MACD indicator, however, shows a bearish signal with the MACD line crossing below the signal line and a red histogram, implying potential downward pressure. Despite the MACD’s bearish outlook, the price’s proximity to the middle band and the overall ascending channel suggests the bullish momentum could still persist, albeit with caution.
