Yesterday I mentioned that the candlestick price action suggested a continuing upwards move and that in fact is what happened yesterday, albeit in a fairly quiet and minor way. The FOMC minutes and Draghi’s speech towards the end of yesterday’s New York session had little effect. We touched 1.3650 shortly after the Frankfurt open this morning. This level has often acted as resistance and support so there is a chance that it may have been the high of today. However the price action does suggest that we will go up to around 1.3687, at which level I will begin to look for a short trade. In the unlikely event that we fall 100 pips today during the London session, the bullish trend line which is currently at about 1.3539 should make a good long touch trade.
My colleague Christopher Lewis also sees the price right now as essentially stuck in a no-man’s land.
