Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Dragonfly Doji Suggests Hesitation Amongst The Bears
  • Reversal Pattern On H4 Suggested An Intraday Bounce

EUR/USD has managed to stage a small recovery yielding a Dragonfly Doji on the daily. The candlestick pattern suggests indecision from traders, yet does not indicate a complete shift in sentiment at this stage. With a congestion zone looming overhead (1.3400-1.3440) sustained gains are questionable.

Traders should note the upcoming ECB decision holds the potential to spark significant volatility that could void technical signals offered.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Bullish Engulfing pattern sub 1.3370 offered an early indication of an intraday bounce for EUR/USD. However, several short periods do little to suggest the potential for a climb over the 1.3400 handle over the session ahead.
