Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: The Euro 'Dummy"

If you have worked in the financial markets long enough you will know that they have a funny way of sometimes making you look foolish. Last week’s acceleration lower in EUR/USD through key support at 1.3025 felt like one of those times. Accelerations in trend around key time periods are not unheard of, in fact, I would estimate they occur about 20% of the time. With respect to the euro I believed it was a much lower probability scenario given the sentiment profile heading into last week as the Daily Sentiment Index (poll of small futures traders) fell to just 6% euro bulls. I still think the sentiment situation remains a major overhang for EUR/USD going forward and at some point we will get a decent “shake of the tree”. The real question is when? With the acceleration through the last window cycle analysis favors weakness into the next important turn window around the end of the month. EUR/JPY might actually be the canary in the coalmine, however, as the middle of the month looks potentially important from a cycle perspective.
