EUR/USD To Extend Slide With Bullish Candlestick Pattern Absent
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Haramioffered bearish signal near the 1.3950 mark
- 4 hour chart shows little signs of a potential bounce
The Harami pattern noted in yesterday’s report has failed to receive confirmation from a second successive up-day, with EUR/USD extending its recent declines to the noteworthy 1.3670 mark. This leaves a bullish reversal signal missing for the pair and suggests a drop to the next definitive support level at 1.3480 may be on the cards, if the candle can close below 1.3670.
