Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Do or Die for the Euro

The next couple of days look critical for EUR/USD from a time cycle perspective. Since October of last year the uptrend in the Euro has been capped by a key Fibonacci confluence between 1.3835 and 1.3970 (50% retracement 2008/2010 decline, 61.8% retracement 2011/2012 decline & 127% extension of 1Q13 decline among others). With the Euro testing the top end of this zone today it is “do or die” for the single currency into this turn window. Another failure near 1.3970 would set up a potentially very important top while a daily close over 1.3970 paves the way for a push towards the next big confluence zone near 1.4350. A top is favored.
