Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Key Test for the Euro

We highlighted the chart above last week. It is a monthly chart of EUR/USD with key Fibonacci retracement and extension levels drawn off yearly highs and lows since 2008. This morning the exchange rate is testing the low end of a confluence zone. If the rate can manage a close sub 1.3460 this week we think it will be strong evidence that the euro is finally embarking on a more significant decline. More importantly this should set the stage for a generally weak second half of the year. In the longer-term scheme of things 1.3730 needs to be reclaimed to neutralize the negative picture.
