Euro looks headed towards the April low or worse

To be clear, trading EURUSD lately hasn’t been an easy endeavor as low volatility conditions continue to be a headwind for traders. We’ve seen some movement in other majors (GBPUSD in particular) but not in the most widely traded pair. That will eventually change, but until it does we have to continue to take what is presented to us and be patient with set-ups.

With that said, the general trading bias remains the same as it has for months – lower. Trend and price action continue to be supportive of this bias. A run on the April low at 11109 or worse looks to be in store sometime in the coming sessions, but the path could be a little shaky.

Dialing in a bit closer to the 4-hr time-frame, a channel is becoming visible even if it isn’t perfect, with candlestick wicks clouding the picture. A small bounce from the lower parallel may make for the best scenario, as the lower parallel’s importance is further cemented and a nearby low is created in the process.

A bounce and subsequent breakdown could offer a solid structure (see 4-hr chart) for would-be shorts from both a probability and risk/reward standpoint. Selling right here at support puts one at risk of a bounce with good stop placement difficult to determine.

A bounce that carries the euro beyond 11225 will give pause to sellers and bring into play the area around 12265 (recent highs/trend-lines) and possibly become an even more attractive spot to short. The bottom line is that the Euro looks headed lower, but it may pay to sit tight and wait for a better look before entering new positions. If currently in a short from higher levels, then one could use the aforementioned highs and trend-lines to manage risk accordingly.
