Forex Strategy: EUR/USD Bears Dominate As Bounce Looks Unlikely

Forex Strategy: EUR/USD Bears Dominate As Bounce Looks Unlikely

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern helped foreshadow declines near 1.3800
  • Evening Starformation on the weekly offers ominous warning

The EUR/USD bears have taken control of price action as the pair teases at more significant correction below 1.3700. The probability of a bounce remains low at this stage, given a bullish signal is notably absent on the daily. Shorts are preferred with a target offered with an initial target offered by the next psychologically-significant level at 1.3600.

Traders should note that the monthly US NFPreport due in the coming hours is likely to spark significant volatility for EUR/USD which could negate technical signals offered. Details available on the economic calendar here.

As noted in recent candlesticks reports, the Bearish Engulfing formation near 1.3805 spelled weakness ahead for EUR/USD. The absence of a bullish reversal signal in intraday trade casts doubt on the potential for a bounce as we push through prior support levels for the pair.

Finally, taking a look at some broader context provided the weekly chart; the Evening Star formation that has emerged shy of the key 1.4000 is a notable warning signal of further declines ahead. The pattern has received confirmation from a successive down week which raises the likelihood of an eventual correction towards the 1.3480 support level.
