  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Harami Pattern Fails To Find Confirmation
  • Spotlight Remains On The 1.3100 Floor

EUR/USD has resumed its downward trajectory which has negated a bullish reversal pattern on the daily. The Harami formation had signaled the potential for a recovery yet failed to find confirmation from a successive up period. This leaves the risks skewed to the downside and keeps the spotlight on the 1.3100 floor.

An examination of the four hour chart reveals some intraday buying support at the 1.3185 barrier. While a Harami pattern had hinted at a recovery for the pair, follow-through proved limited. This casts some doubt over the potential for a bounce over the remainder of the session.
