Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Daily close below support at 1.3500 to open 1.3400
  • Absence of bullish signals casts doubt on potential bounce

The bulls appear unwilling to relinquish their grip on EUR/USD as the common currency holds above the 1.3500 handle. While several short body candles are suggestive of indecision amongst traders, they do little to suggest a more meaningful bounce at this stage. A daily close below support at 1.3500 would help signal conviction amongst the bears and open up the next psychologically-significant level at 1.3400.
