EUR/USD Descent Stalls As A Doji Candlestick Highlights Hesitation

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bears Lose Steam As A Doji Candlestick Indicates Indecision
  • Recovery Questionable Amid Absence Of Bullish Signals

EUR/USD has managed to regain its footing as a Doji candlestick indicates indecision from traders. Further, a Morning Star formation appears to be taking shape. However, the pattern requires the close of the current candle and a successive up-day in order to suggest a base may have formed. Until this arises a sustained recovery remains questionable.

Traders should note that the upcoming ECB meeting may catalyze significant volatility for the Euro which could negate technical signals offered.

A medley of short body candles and Doji formations indicated that the Euro was losing downside momentum in intraday trade. Sellers appear intent on capping the currency’s recovery at the 1.2665 mark. Yet amid an absence of intraday reversal signals a breakout could open a retest of the 1.2710 ceiling.
