EURUSD: Bulls Threaten Stop-Loss Level

By , Currency Strategist
30 March 2012 12:07 GMT

Strategy: Short at 1.3073 (Avg), Targeting 1.2864

Floating Profit / Loss: -265 pips

We initially sold EURUSD at 1.3121 and added to the position at 1.3026. The pair is dangerously close to our stop-loss level at 1.3378 but a daily close above it has not materialized, leaving our initial trade parameters intact. Prices put in a bearish Harami candlestick pattern below resistance at 1.3359, the confluence of the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement and a falling trend line set from late August, hinting a move lower may have scope to materialize. We will remain short, allowing the position to play out.
