EUR/USD Bullish Signal Puts 1.3900 In Focus
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Bullish Engulfing candlestick suggests run on 1.3900 to come
- Break above range-top needed to push prices to 1.3935/50
EUR/USD’s consolidation between 1.3780 and 1.3900 has persisted with the most recent bounce off the range-bottom prompting the formation of a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. While the signal typically foreshadows a reversal following a downtrend the pattern may be an indication the pair may be set to make another run on 1.3900.

Similarly, a Bullish Engulfing pattern in intraday trade has helped propel prices higher. With a bearish reversal signal seemingly absent, a push above 1.3900 could lead to an advance on the next definitive level of resistance at 1.3935.
