Forex Strategy - EUR/USD May Extend Gains With Reversal Signal Absent

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Longs preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover near 1.3900 fails to receive confirmation
  • Absence of bearish reversal signal puts 1.3960 in focus

EUR/USD traders have seemingly shrugged off the bearish reversal signal offered by the Dark Cloud Cover formation near 1.3900 shown on the daily chart below. As signs of a turnaround remain absent, the Euro may be poised to continue its ascent, although sellers sitting around the 1.3930 mark in intraday trading may provide a small hurdle.
