EUR/USD Slide Grinds To A Halt As A Doji Candle Denotes Indecision

EUR/USD Slide Grinds To A Halt As A Doji Candle Denotes Indecision

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Doji Candlestick Highlights Hesitation
  • Close Below 1.2660 To Open Run On 1.2250

EUR/USD has managed to regain its footing as a Doji formation on the daily suggests indecision from traders. Yet key reversal candlesticks signals for the pair are still missing, which in turn casts some doubt over a rebound. Some buying interest appears evident near 1.2650/60. If broken the stage would be set for an extended decline to the late August 2012 low at 1.2250.

Turning to the four hour chart for an examination of intraday price action reveals a sideways drift between 1.2665 and 1.2710. Alongside the medley of short body candles and Dojis a clear directional bias is lacking. This leaves a break of the narrow trading band desired before making a move on the pair.
