EUR/USD Bearish Engulfing Pattern Emerges In Intraday Trade
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Bearish Engulfing pattern on four hour chart awaits confirmation
- Evening Starformation on the weekly offers ominous warning
EUR/USD has powered through several key resistance levels in recent trading, which has likely caught the bears off-guard. With a reversal signal still missing on the daily, further gains may be possible with sellers likely to emerge the next psychological level at 1.3900.

Drilling down to examine intraday price action, the presence of a Bearish Engulfing pattern is noteworthy. However, the key reversal signal has yet to receive confirmation to be validated, which at this stage precludes a bearish bias 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.
