Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of bullish candlestick opens further declines
  • Falls likely to be met by buying support near 1.3500

As suggested in recent EUR/USD candlesticks reports; the Euro was set for further declines in the absence of a bullish reversal pattern. While the pair staged a small recovery to support-turned-resistance at 1.3670, the emergence of another Harami pattern suggests the bears have regained control of prices. Further falls may encounter buying support at the psychologically-significant 1.3500 handle.

Drilling down to examine the four hour chart; a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern indicated the bears were wrestling control of prices following a test of 1.3665. With a Bullish Engulfing pattern near 1.3520 finding little follow-through in recent trading, the common currency may struggle to recover ground in the session ahead.
