The Euro has surged to fresh 4-month highs as the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index plummets. The currency now trades at critical support and may represent a trade opportunity, but is now a good time to go short?

Pros in favor of Euro/US Dollar short position:

Euro is likely to consolidate and less likely to break significantly higher ahead of critical ESM vote

US S&P 500 may have found key resistance, favoring pullback in correlated EURUSD

Yesterday’s Euro/US Dollar inside day was reminiscent of the October, 2011 top

Cons against Euro/US Dollar short position:

Euro rally likely a function of short-covering, could continue as traders limit risk ahead of ESM vote

Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index takes a beating and the Euro eyes $1.2904

Retail trading crowds heavily net-short EURUSD, contrarian buy signal
