EUR/USD Morning Star Confirmation To Hint At A Base
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Morning Star Pattern Awaits Confirmation Near 2014 Low
- Shooting Star Suggested An Intraday Shift In Sentiment
EUR/USD’s recent rebound has yielded a Morning Star formation, which may hint at a recovery for the pair. However, the pattern requires a successive up-day in order to be validated and to suggest a base may have formed. This may prove a difficult feat given the sustained presence of a downtrend and the sellers likely sitting nearby at the 1.2700 handle.
Traders should note the upcoming US Non-Farm Payrolls report holds the potential to spark significant volatility which may negate technical signals offered.

A Shooting Star formation in intraday trade has offered an early indication that the Euro bears are staging a return. Yet the ensuing short body candles do little to inspire confidence in a continued correction. Buying interest is likely to be renewed at the pair’s recent lows near 1.2570.
