Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Hesitation Persists As Highlighted By Dojis Near 1.3100
  • Recovery Questionable In Absence of Bullish Signals

EUR/USDremains at a crossroads as parade of Dojis highlights indecision near the critical 1.3100 floor. A daily close below the hurdle would set the scene for a run on the psychologically-significant 1.3000 handle.

The four hour chart reveals a similar narrative to the daily with several short body periods denoting hesitation from traders. Yet a void of bullish reversal candlesticks casts doubt on a recovery at this stage. Given the context afforded by the daily clearance of the 1.3100 handle would be preferred before looking at new short positions.
