EUR/USD

This is the most popular currency pair in the world, representing the world's two largest economies. The Euro was created to facilitate cross-border trade of European trading partners. Since its inception in 1999, the pair has faced considerable volatility as the world has faced multiple events of volatility such as the tech boom becoming the tech bust, the real estate bubble, and the European Debt Crisis which still has yet to find long-term resolution.

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Strategy: Flat
  • Reversal Signal Waiting for Follow-Through
  • Bounce to be Treated as Opening to Get Short

The Euro may be bottoming against the US Dollar following the appearance of a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A move above the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0973 exposes the 23.6% threshold at 1.1291.Alternatively, a push belowthe 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.0535 exposes the intersection of a multi-year channel floor and the 23.6% threshold at 1.0217.

Our long-term fundamental outlook continues to favor broad-based Euro weakness. With that in mind, we will look to on-coming gains as an opportunity to establish a short position at more attractive levels once the upswing is exhausted.
