- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Recovery Doubtful In Absence of Bullish Patterns On The Daily
- H4 Chart Offers Contrasting Picture As Key Reversal Signal Emerges
EUR/USD may be set to extend its recent declines with key reversal patterns lacking on the daily chart. 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.

Intraday support for the pair may have been found at 1.3240 based on the four hour chart below. While a Bullish Engulfing formation is emerging, it awaits the close of the current candle and successive up-period to be validated. An intraday recovery is likely to be met by selling pressure at the psychologically-significant 1.3300 hurdle.
