EUR/USD Struggles Sub 1.2700 As A Doji Denotes Indecision

EUR/USD Struggles Sub 1.2700 As A Doji Denotes Indecision

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Does Little To Confirm Piercing Line Pattern
  • Awaiting Cues On H4 Following Sideways Drift

EUR/USD’s recent Doji formation does little to inspire confidence in the reversal signal offered by a Piercing Line pattern. Alongside the sustained presence of a downtrend sellers sitting nearby at the 1.2700 handle a recovery may prove a difficult feat. Further, the Euro’s path lower over recent months has been littered with reversal signals that have failed to generate much follow-through.

The four hour chart has been plagued by choppy price action over the past 24 hours. This has left a void of cues from candlestick analysis and suggests awaiting a more constructive setup may be prudent.
