EURUSD: Hold Short as Prices Hit First Target

EURUSD: Hold Short as Prices Hit First Target

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Short at 1.3073 (Avg), Targeting 1.2674

Floating Profit / Loss: +244 pips

We initially sold EURUSD at 1.3121 and added to the position at 1.3026. The pair sold off after putting in a bearish Harami candlestick pattern and has now met our initial objective with a daily close below 1.2865, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion level. We will now move our stop-loss lower to be activated on a daily close above 1.3073 and hold short targeting 1.2674, the 50% Fib.
