EUR/USD Hammer To Warn Of Corrective Bounce If Confirmed
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Hammer To Offer Bullish Signal If Confirmed
- Downside Risk Remains With 1.3320 In Focus
EUR/USD’s downward trajectory may be at risk following the emergence of a Hammer formation on the daily. However, the bullish reversal pattern lacks the successive up-day required to confirm the signal. Additionally, given the proximity to resistance at 1.3400 a recovery may be a stretch at this stage. This leaves the spotlight on the 1.3320 mark.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Morning Star pattern offers a bullish reversal signal in intraday trade. However, as noted above sellers remain prepared to cap the currency’s recovery at the 1.3400 handle. This casts doubt over the potential for a sustained bounce for the Euro.
