EUR/USD Aiming Lower Following Bearish Reversal Pattern

EUR/USD Aiming Lower Following Bearish Reversal Pattern

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Harami paves way for retreat to 1.3600
  • Dojidemonstrates hesitation in intraday trade

EUR/USD may be primed for a further pullback following a Harami pattern on the daily near noteworthy resistance at 1.3700. Confirmation from a second successive down-day has helped to validate the signal and opens a decline to former resistance-turned-support at 1.3590.

Traders should note the upcoming ECB rate decision and US NFPs report hold the potential to spark significant volatility for EUR/USD, which could act to negate technical signals offered.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Doji candlestick near support at 1.3638 suggests some hesitation from the bulls. However, the formation may prove insufficient to spark a recovery for the pair over the session ahead.
