EURUSD: Continue Holding Short on Upswing

EURUSD: Continue Holding Short on Upswing

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Short at 1.2556, Targeting 1.2398

Floating Profit/Loss: -27 pips

We sold EURUSD at 1.2556 as prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance at the top of a Rising Wedge pattern carved out since late July. Prices are now rebounding to retest the Wedge top but the overall bearish setup remains intact absent a daily close above the Engulfing pattern’s high (1.2588, our stop-loss) and we will continue to hold short. The initial target remains at 1.2398.
