EURUSD: Short Trade Triggered at Wedge Top

By , Currency Strategist
29 August 2012 02:28 GMT

Strategy: Short at 1.2556, Targeting 1.2398

Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance at the top of a Rising Wedge pattern carved out since late July, hinting a move lower is ahead. A rebound following the setup’s formation has improved risk/reward parameters and we will now enter a small short position, initially targeting 1.2398. A daily close below this barrier would complete the Wedge reversal and we would likely add to the trade at that point as the larger EURUSD down trend continues. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.2588.
