Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern awaiting confirmation
  • Key level at 1.3590 keeping EUR/USD supported

EUR/USD is left at a critical juncture near key support at 1.3590 with a Bearish Engulfing pattern warning of weakness ahead. Given the formation’s close proximity to support, a downside break and successive down-day would be preferred before looking at new shorts.

A Piercing Line pattern on the four hour chart, which may have hinted at a recovery for EUR/USD failed to find confirmation from a successive up-day. With sellers seemingly capping the pair at the 1.3610 mark, a bounce over the session ahead is questionable.
