Price & Time: Situation Critical For The Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

Price & Time: Situation Critical For The Euro

EUR/USD has come under renewed pressure over the past few sessions to record its lowest level since November of 2012. In a strange way this is precisely what I want to see heading into the key cyclical period I have highlighted over the next few days as there is little ambiguity in what to look for. Almost like clockwork as the euro has begun to break down into this key period articles have begun to appear in the financial press explaining why the euro is such a clear sell.
