Just How Big of A Deal is This Recent EUR/USD Decline?

Just How Big of A Deal is This Recent EUR/USD Decline?

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD reverses sharply from key long-term resistance zone
  • Bigger top developing?

EUR/USD has had a very difficult time penetrating the top end of an important Fibonacci confluence zone that rests between 1.3830 and 1.3970. This zone is important because the 50% retracement of the 2008/2010 decline, the 61.8% retracement of 2009/2010 decline, the 61.8% retracement of the 2011/2012 decline and the 127% extension of the 1Q13 decline all converge there. In their own right each one of these levels is probably important enough to prompt a reversal of some importance, but together they demand a lot more attention. Last week’s failure coupled with the aggressive weakness witnessed over the past couple of days in the exchange rate warns that a top of some importance has likely been recorded. The near-term cyclical picture looks positive for a few days, however, and we like selling into any strength that develops during this period.
