Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD extended its decline following last week’s failure at the 61.8% retracement of the 2009/2010 decline
  • A weekly close below 1.3655 will turn us negative on the Euro
  • The 2012 closing high near 1.3800 is now critical resistance with strength above needed to relieve immediate downside pressure
  • The latter half of the month is the next medium-term cycle turn window

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like adding to shorts on a weekly close below 1.3655.
