EUR/USD Leaves Traders In Suspense As Dojis Dominate At Key Support
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Hesitation Persists As Highlighted By Dojis Near 1.3100
- Recovery Questionable In Absence of Bullish Signals
EUR/USDcontinues to tease traders as several short body sessions suggest hesitation near the 1.3100 barrier. A daily close below the hurdle would be required to set the scene for a run on the psychologically-significant 1.3000 handle.

The four hour chart reveals a similar narrative to the daily with several short body periods indicating indecision. Yet a void of bullish reversal candlesticks casts doubt on a recovery at this stage. Given the context afforded by the daily, clearance of the 1.3100 handle would be preferred before looking at new short positions.
