EUR/USD Hammered As Harami Delivers Drop To Notable Support

EUR/USD Hammered As Harami Delivers Drop To Notable Support

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Harami paved the way for a retreat to 1.3600
  • Bounce doubtful in absence of reversal patterns

As noted in recent candlesticks reports EUR/USD was primed for a pullback following a Harami pattern on the daily near noteworthy resistance at 1.3700. Confirmation from a second successive down-day helped to validate the signal and opened a decline to former resistance-turned-support at 1.3590. A daily close below the support level would suggest enough conviction from the bears to achieve the 1.3500 handle.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; candlestick reversal signals are notably absent for the Euro. While a bounce looks doubtful at this point a break below support at 1.3585 would likely afford a better entry for new short positions.
