Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3644
  • Support: 1.3248, 1.3195-204, 1.3151
  • Resistance:1.3291, 1.3345, 1.3432

The Euro accelerated downward against the US Dollar after carving out a Triangle chart formation, hitting the lowest level in 11 months. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 1.3248 exposes the 1.3195-1.3204 area, marked by the 61.8% level and a falling channel floor. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.3291 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 1.3345.

We sold EURUSD at 1.3644 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook and have since booked profit on half of the position. The rest remains open to capture continued downside momentum. The stop-loss is now at breakeven level.
