EURUSD: Holding Short as Prices Hint at Upswing
Strategy: Short at 1.3073 (Avg), Targeting 1.2244
Floating Profit / Loss: +569 pips
We initially sold EURUSD at 1.3121 and added to the position at 1.3026. The pair sold off after forming a bearish Harami candlestick pattern and we have subsequently revised the stop-loss and target downward to lock in some gains. Prices are now showing a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern, hinting a bounce is ahead. We will continue to hold short for now, looking for the correction to yield a further selling opportunity. The stop-loss remains set to be triggered on a daily close above 1.2674.
