EUR/USD Struggles Near 2014 High As Candlesticks Suggest Intraday Dip

EUR/USD Struggles Near 2014 High As Candlesticks Suggest Intraday Dip

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern on four hour chartsuggests intraday dip
  • More significant correction may be a stretch given lack of signals on daily

EUR/USDhas broken above the critical 1.3900 handle in recent trading with the pair now seemingly struggling near its 2014 high. Intraday candlestick patterns suggest the potential for a pullback to the original breakout point. However a more significant correction may not be warranted at this stage given a key reversal pattern remains missing on the daily.
