Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Formation May Yield A Corrective Bounce
  • Selling Into Rallies Preferred With Core Downtrend Intact

EUR/USDhas staged an about face after failing to crack the 1.3150 floor which has left a Bullish Engulfing formation in its wake. The key reversal pattern warns of a corrective bounce to fill the weekend gap. However, against the backdrop of a core downtrend, a more sustained recovery may prove difficult. This leaves selling into rallies preferred with a retest of 1.3240 likely to see pressure on the pair renewed.
