Forex Analysis: EURUSD Yields Short Trade Setup

Forex Analysis: EURUSD Yields Short Trade Setup

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Pending Short at 1.2982, Targeting 1.2826

Prices completed a bearish Three Inside Down candlestick pattern below falling trend line resistance set from May 2011 and broke through upward-sloping support set from the June swing bottom, hinting a significant reversal is at hand. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short at current levels however. With that in mind, we will set up a short entry order to trigger at 1.2982. Once the position is open, the initial objective will be the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion (1.2826) and a stop-loss set to activate on a daily close above 1.3138.
