Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Harami paved the way for a retreat to 1.3590
  • Bounce doubtful in absence of reversal patterns

EUR/USD has failed to break key support near 1.3590 after a Harami pattern led the currency lower over the last week. While buyers appear prepared to support the pair at current levels, reversal signals on the daily remain absent. This casts doubt over the potential for a recovery to resistance at 1.3700.
