EUR/USD Harami Near Critical Resistance Hints At A Reversal
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Harami paves way for retreat to 1.3600
- Dojidemonstrated indecision amongst traders near 1.3700
EUR/USD may be primed for a pullback following a Harami pattern on the daily near noteworthy resistance at 1.3700. Confirmation from a second successive down-day would help validate the signal and open a decline to former resistance-turned-support at 1.3590.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Doji candlestick offered an indication of hesitation from the bulls following a knock on the psychologically-significant 1.3700 handle. While EUR/USD may have found support near 1.3650 in intraday trading, the absence of a bullish reversal pattern casts doubt on a recovery.
