Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3644
  • Support: 1.3583, 1.3502-12, 1.3454
  • Resistance:1.3668, 1.3689, 1.3747

The Euro declined as expected against the US Dollar after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Support is at 1.3583, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a daily close below that exposing the 1.3502-12 area marked by the June 5 low and the 38.2% level.A turn above rising trend line support-turned-resistance at 1.3668 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.3689.

We sold EURUSD at 1.3644 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook, initially targeting 1.3583. A stop-loss will trigger on a close above 1.3700.We will take profit on half of the trade and move the stop-loss to breakeven on the remainder of the position once the first target is met.
