EUR/USD Downside Risks Remain As Hammer Candlestick Disdained

EUR/USD Downside Risks Remain As Hammer Candlestick Disdained

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

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.
