EUR/USD Standing Head-and-Shoulders above the Rest

EUR/USD Standing Head-and-Shoulders above the Rest

Check out the fundamental view on EURUSD in our Q4 Forecast.

We aren’t quite there yet, but a topping pattern – ‘Head-and-shoulders’ – is coming more and more into focus with each passing day. The beginning of the pending pattern starts back in early August with the development of a ‘left shoulder’, the ‘head’ came early September upon a failure at the 2012 low, and now we are left waiting for a ‘right shoulder’ to fully form. It may have already done-so with the turn down from 11880. To make the pattern official, though, we not only need the ‘right shoulder’ to solidify but also see a daily closing bar below the ‘neckline’.

The 'measured move' target on a clean break of the 'neckline' is derived by taking the height of the pattern and subtracting it from the ‘neckline’. This method points to a target in the mid-11200s. This would take EURUSD a good distance back into the range from 2015-2017, so it’s possible if it's to eventually trade much higher, broadly speaking, that a move lower may be truncated and not reach the end-target. But this doesn’t mean there still isn’t a good risk/reward opportunity here brewing. Swing-traders can operate off the daily chart, and for those trading shorter-term time-frames (i.e 4-hr or less), a confirmed break can be used to help shape trades by following the path of least resisistance.
