EUR/USD Remains At Risk With Bearish Engulfing Pattern In Tow

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Bearish Engulfing Pattern Casts Risks Lower
  • Key Reversal Signals Lacking In Intraday Trade

EUR/USD’s woes may be set to continue after a Bearish Engulfing formation was left in its wake. The key reversal candlestick may herald a revisit of the 1.2500 lows following confirmation from a successive down-session. A climb over the 1.2755 hurdle would be required to negate a bearish bias.

The four hour chart reveals a void of bullish reversal signals which places a question mark over a corrective bounce. However, given the proximity to intraday support, a downside break would be preferred before adopting fresh short positioning.
