- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Absence of bullish candlestick opens further declines
- Falls likely to be met by buying support near 1.3500
As suggested in the most recent EUR/USD candlesticks report; the Euro was set for further declines in the absence of a bullish reversal pattern. While the pair staged a small recovery to support-turned-resistance at 1.3670, the emergence of another Harami pattern suggests the bears have regained control of prices. Further falls may encounter buying support at the psychologically-significant 1.3500 handle.

Drilling down to examine the four hour chart; a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern indicated the bears were wrestling control of prices following a test of 1.3665. Following the ensuing break below buying support at 1.3585 we’re yet to see a bullish reversal pattern emerge. This suggests the potential for a continued correction to 1.3500.
