Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Doji suggests hesitation from the bulls near the critical 1.3900 handle
  • Bears returned in intraday trade post a Dark Cloud Cover formation

EUR/USD’s consolidation between 1.3780 and 1.3900 has persisted with the most recent pullback from the range-top prompting the formation of a Dojicandlestick. The formation suggests signs of indecision from traders and the potential for a pull-back towards the range-bottom.

Traders should be mindful of the potential for a surprise US Non-Farm Payrolls reading in the coming hours to spark significant volatility for US Dollar based pairs. The release of the figures will be covered live in DailyFX Plus.
