Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Doji Candlestick Indicates Indecision Near 1.3340
  • Break Of Nearby Support To Open 1.3100 Target

The Euro remains at a critical juncture as the emergence of a Gravestone Doji indicates traders remain hesitant to tip the currency over the 1.3340 barrier. Given the proximity to nearby buying support new shorts may be better served on a downside break. This would set the stage for a push to the September 2013 lows near 1.3100.
