EUR/USD Bulls Return As Candlesticks Signal Potential Recovery
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Emergenceof another Doji on the daily suggests a potential recovery
- Harami in intraday trade reinforces potential for a bounce
EUR/USD is making another run on the 1.3840 mark following a couple of Doji formations near key support at 1.3800. The candlesticks suggest some hesitation amongst the bears, which may be the precursor for a continued recover. A daily close above 1.3840 could open further gains to the psychologically-significant 1.3900 handle.

Drilling down to examine intraday price action; the Dark Cloud Cover pattern noted in recent candlesticks reports delivered declines for EUR/USD to support at 1.3785. With a Harami now having formed and a bearish reversal signal missing, a continued recovery looks possible.

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 for a potential decline in EUR/USD over the longer term.
