EURUSD: Trend Change in Progress?
Strategy: Pending Short
Total Profit / Loss: -341 pips
Our EURUSD short at 1.3829 was stopped out as prices closed above the stop-loss level at 1.4035. Beyond invalidating the March 7 swing top, the key question going forward is whether last week’s price action amounts to a trend-changing development with the break above falling trend line resistance established from the record high above 1.60 set in July 2008. Two alternative – and equally valid – approaches to drawing the line (one including the wick tops from late 2009 and one not) suggests additional confirmation is required, particularly while EURUSD trades near the often-pivotal 1.42 figure. We will closely monitor the pair in the days ahead as a directional bias is resolved.
