Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: In Search of A Low in the Euro Next Week

EUR/USD fell to its lowest level in almost a year on Wednesday before finding support near the 38% retracement (polarity) of the 2011 to 2012 decline in the 1.3150 area. My cycle work suggests that next week should prove important for the exchange rate from a timing perspective. Originally I had anticipated that this key period around the start of September would end up being some sort of secondary high in the single currency, but the August correction never materialized. With sentiment now at dangerous extremes (EUR DSI at just 6% bulls) and seasonal analysis showing that September is one of the stronger periods of the year for the euro, factors seem to be aligning for some sort of decent low next week. With the highly anticipated ECB meeting coming right around the idealized turn date I am expecting that the actions taken by Draghi & Co. will probably be interpreted as a disappointment by the market as a whole. Key reaction levels over the next few days are seen at 1.3125, 1.3085 and 1.3055.
