Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bullish Candlestick Pattern Awaiting Confirmation
  • Spotlight On 1.2755 Following Close Below 1.2850

EUR/USD remains at a critical juncture as it probes above former support-turned-resistance at 1.2850 with a Harami pattern in its wake. At this stage the bullish reversal formation awaits confirmation, which leaves the immediate risk skewed to the downside. A daily close back above the 1.2850 barrier would be required to negate a near-term bearish technical bias.

The four hour chart tells a tale of indecision as the medley of short candles and Dojis continues. Buying interest appears to have been renewed in intraday trade at the 1.2820 mark. Yet within a void of key reversal signals a recovery over the session ahead is questionable.
