  • Recovery Doubtful In Absence of Bullish Patterns
  • H4 Chart Offered An Early Warning of A Pullback

EUR/USD’s woes may be set to continue following a leap over critical support leaving an absence of bullish reversal patterns. This may leave the pair vulnerable to a sustained descent on the 1.3100 handle (the September 2013 low). A daily close back above the 1.3340 barrier would be required to negate a bearish technical bias.
