  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Candlestick Finds Limited Follow-Through
  • Daily Close Below 1.3400 To Open Descent To 1.3320

EUR/USD has failed to overcome selling pressure at the 1.3440 mark despite a Hammer candlestick formation in its wake. A retreat under the psychologically-significant 1.3400 handle would set the stage for a resumption of the pairs’ downtrend and open the 1.3320 floor.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Harami pattern was initially met with little enthusiasm from traders, yet eventually saw the Euro edge lower. A void of bullish reversal candlesticks casts some doubt on the potential for a recovery for the pair over the session ahead. However, the nearby 1.3400 handle may act to slow the common currency’s descent.
