Chart prepared by Christopher Vecchio using Marketscope 2.0
FOREX Analysis: On Wednesday I said “I’d look into 1.3070/80 (38.2% Fib July 2012 low to February 2013 high [blue line], 50% Fib April low to June high [red line]) for resistance for the next short opportunity.” Price has approached this level today, bouncing off of the daily RSI uptrend as expected, presenting the shorting opportunity on a rally we’ve been eying.
FOREX Trading Strategy: The US Dollar has rallied a long ways since last Wednesday’s Fed meeting so it would be shortsighted to ignore the potential for a pullback – even if for a day or two. However, a test of the 1.3070/80 region and ensuing failure would warrant a look from the short side once more, with risk contained to the June 25 high at 1.3150.
