Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence Of Bullish Candles Opens Further Declines
  • Close Below 1.2755 To Open Run On 1.2660

EUR/USDhas seemingly looked past a Hammer formation on the daily as the pair resumes its descent. Within the confines of a sustained downtrend the bullish candlestick formation would require a successive up day and close above 1.2850 to signal a shift in sentiment. In the absence of such a scenario the risks are skewed to the downside with the spotlight left on the November 2012 low near 1.2660.

The four hour chart highlights some hesitation near the 1.2700 handle as denoted by a Doji formation. Yet an absence of classic reversal candlesticks casts doubt on the potential for a recovery over the session ahead.
