EUR/USD Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern May Fail To Stir The Bulls

EUR/USD Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern May Fail To Stir The Bulls

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Emerges, Yet Follow-Though May Be Limited
  • Selling Into Rallies Preferred As Core Downtrend Remains Intact

The four hour chart offered an early indication of an intraday recovery for the Euro. An Inverted Hammer formation near 1.2867 suggested the bulls were set to retake the 1.2900 handle. Yet the emergence of an Evening Star pattern warns that upside momentum is already fading for the currency.
