EURUSD – Forex trading crowds have bought aggressively into Euro weakness as it nears critical support versus the US Dollar, and the sharp shift warns of volatility ahead.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: We most often go against the crowd; if everyone’s recently bought we like to sell and vice versa. Yet the issue is that extremely low forex volatility gives little reason to expect a major Euro breakdown here. And in fact, the retail trading crowd is often on the right side of major reversals in low-volatility environments.

We’re cautiously bullish the EURUSD until we see a bigger shift in market conditions. A break below $1.35 would obviously negate this bias and be accompanied by a jump in broader market volatility.
