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 continues to keep traders in suspense near the critical 1.3340 floor with several Dojis indicating deliberation amongst traders. At this stage key bullish reversal patterns remain missing which leaves the immediate risk to the downside. 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.

Based on the context afforded by the daily, shorts near the range-top would be preferred to trying to pick a bottom.
