EUR/USD Faces Consolidation Amid Absence Of Bearish Patterns

Talking Points

  • Strategy:Flat
  • Morning Star Pattern Suggested A Turn Higher
  • Consolidation May Lie Ahead With Resistance Nearby

EUR/USD achieved the downside targets offered in recent candlestick reports. However, the downside risks have somewhat abated following the rise of a Morning Star near 1.2245. With bearish reversal signals lacking a pullback at this stage is questionable. At the same time sellers appear prepared to cap the pair at the 1.2620 mark. This in turn may suggest a consolidative period ahead.

Traders should note the upcoming FOMC Decision offers substantial fundamental event risk that may negate technical signals offered.

A Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern near 1.2565 on the four hour chart suggests reluctance from the bulls to lead the Euro higher. Yet at this stage a pullback has proven fairly lackluster with buyers sitting at the 1.2500 handle.
