EUR/USD Skimming Key Support With Bullish Candlesticks Missing
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Recovery Questionable In Absence of Bullish Signals
- H4 Doji Denotes Hesitation Near Intraday Support
EUR/USD is left hanging by a thread near critical support as a Doji signals some hesitation from traders to lead the pair lower. The sign of indecision may yield a small corrective bounce. Yet a void of bullish patterns within the context of a core downtrend suggests a more sustained recovery may prove difficult. A daily close below the 1.2920 hurdle would set the scene for a run on the July 2013 low near 1.2755.

The four hour chart reveals a similar narrative to the daily with a void of reversal candlesticks casting doubt over the potential for a retest of its recent highs. A medley of short body session and Doji candlesticks denotes a strong degree of indecision near the 1.2920 barrier.
