EUR/USD (daily chart) has extended its three-day decline by dropping to major support around the 1.3150 price region. This drop occurs on marked US dollar strength this week that saw the pair end a steep bullish run and establish an intermediate top just above 1.3400-area resistance mid-week before turning sharply to the downside.

Momentum on this sharp downturn continues to be strongly bearish after three substantial down days, and is not showing any signs of relenting. A continuation of downside momentum moving forward into next week could see EUR/USD target its major support/resistance pivot level at the 1.3000 figure, a breakdown below which could move towards key 1.2800 support and then a potential resumption of the bearish trend that has been in place since early February.
