Short-term bullish transition?

After having a failed breakout at 1.3180 support - June 10 low - the EUR/USD has produced a bullish reversal structure by printing higher highs and higher lows intraday - see 30m/1h chart -, thus enhancing the odds of a short term corrective extension towards 1.3280-1.33, area where an imbalance in favor of sellers is still observed, refer to today's supply/demand report for further details.

If/when the EUR/USD reaches 1.3280-1.33 vicinity - also 61.8% fib retrac 1.3410.1.3160 decline -, watch for price action behaviour to provide further clues. A break higher sees more ground possibly being gained, all within the context of a new bear cycle developing unless 1.3380-1.34 is retaken.

Don't lose sight of the downside potential

For new buyers to be discouraged, 1.3180-90 support should be taken out again. If that is the case, in view of Valeria Bednrik, Chief Analyst at, "a break below 1.3060 low would point for a slide towards 1.3100 over upcoming Asian session."
