EUR/USD Hanging Man Warns Of Deeper Setback Towards 1.2620

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hanging Man Emerges After Retreat From 1.2850
  • Dark Cloud Cover On H4 Offered Early Warning

EUR/USDhas continued a cautious retreat after a Hanging Man signaled a return of the bears near 1.2850. The reversal formation has received confirmation from a successive down-period, which warns of a deeper setback to the recent lows near 1.2620 ahead of 1.2500. However, traders should be mindful the pair is setting a series of higher highs and higher lows, the basic definition of an uptrend.

A Dark Cloud Cover pattern on the four hour chart offered an early warning signal of a potential pullback in intraday trade. With bullish reversal signals seemingly lacking a recovery over the session ahead is questionable.
