Forex Strategy - EUR/USD Hanging Man Suggests Bulls In Doubt

Forex Strategy - EUR/USD Hanging Man Suggests Bulls In Doubt

2014-03-19 10:57:00
David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Intraday Range-Trading Preferred
  • Hanging Man formation needs confirmation before suggesting correction
  • Short-term range evident on four hour chart between 1.3875 and 1.3935

EUR/USD’s ascent is showing signs of slowing with the daily chart posting a Hanging Man formation that may be hinting at a correction for the pair. While the candlestick is noteworthy given its appearance near resistance at 1.3930, confirmation from a successive down day would be required before offering a bearish technical bias.

Drilling down to a four hour chart; the drawn out struggle between the bulls and bears continues. An intraday range is apparent with prices consolidating between 1.3875 and 1.3935 which may favor range-trading strategies.

It should be noted that the upcoming FOMC March meeting offers substantial fundamental event risk for the US Dollar. The price action resulting from the decision may negate technical signals offered. Traders can watch live coverage of the event in the DailyFX Plus area of the site.
