EUR/USD Stalls After 145 Pip Advance

(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

Looking at the 5minute graph below, the EUR/USD can be seen trading off of its most recent swing low of 1.1259. This low has been pinpointed by the Grid Sight Index (GSI) as the most recent low of a short term downtrend, which has developed in the last hour of trading. After reviewing 27,844,942 pricing points, GSI has indicated that price action has continued to decline 15 pips or more in 37% of the 84 matching historical events. This is significant as GSI may suggest further range bound market conditions in the absence of lower lows. It should be noted that the first bearish distribution is found at a price of 1.1248.

GSI has also indicated that prices have advanced by 15 pips or more in 50% of the identified historical matches. The first bullish distribution found in the graph below is at 1.1278. A move through this value would suggest a short term swing in momentum back up towards values of resistance. In If the EUR/USD is poised to break higher, trader should watch for a move to the last bullish distribution at 1.1323. Prices advanced 60 pips in just 1% of historical instances. However, a move to this value would place the EUR/USD 1 pip above yesterdays peak.
