Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Harami paved the way for a retreat to 1.3600
  • Bounce doubtful in absence of reversal patterns

EUR/USD weakness has persisted following the Harami pattern on the daily which helped herald a decline to 1.3590. A daily close below the support level would leave the pair exposed to a retreat to the 1.3500 handle.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; while a Doji candlestick is evident, more notable reversal signals are absent for the Euro. This makes an intraday bounce for the currency appear doubtful.
