EUR/USD Daily Close Below Support To Offer New Short Entries
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Hammer needs confirmation near key support
- Daily close below 1.3670 to open further declines
EUR/USD continues to tease traders near critical support at 1.3670 with the Hammer formation on the daily suggesting the bulls are not prepared to relinquish their grip on the pair just yet. However, before suggesting a potential bounce back to 1.3780, the reversal signal needs to see confirmation from a successive up-day. A daily close below 1.3670 would signal strong conviction amongst the bears and open up the next noteworthy level of support at 1.3480.
