Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Euro Dead Cat Bounce Or Something More?

The 8.6 month cyclical relationship with last year’s high seems to be eliciting a reaction from EUR/USD. Just how important this reaction will be still remains to be seen. With cyclical relationships I have found that it is fairly easy to identify inflection points, but determining the duration and extent of the move that follows is the real tricky part. The conditions in place at the moment (extreme negative sentiment, IMM short positioning at 2.5 year highs, spot recently touching the bottom of its 1-year 4th standard deviation channel) in the exchange rate suggest there is some serious potential for a decent counter-trend move to develop. However, a lot of these conditions have been in place for quite some time and the euro has so far ignored them. With respect to the USD, it is almost starting to feel pre-Plaza Accord like. I am currently focused on 1.1310 in the euro as a daily settlement above there would be a strong signal that a counter-trend move of some significance is indeed underway.
