EUR/USD Piercing Line Pattern Produces Slow Grind Higher

EUR/USD Piercing Line Pattern Produces Slow Grind Higher

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Signaled Sentiment Shift
  • Correction Questionable Amid Lack Of Bearish Signals

EUR/USD’s slow march higher has endured after a Piercing Line formation signaled a shift in sentiment near 1.2500. Some selling pressure is evident at the 1.2755 mark, which if broken may open an advance on the 1.2850 ceiling. Whereas, a daily close under former resistance-turned-support at 1.2700 would be required to turn the immediate risk lower.

The Euro has finally cleared the congestion zone between 1.2500 and 1.2700. A Doji formation may suggest some reluctance from the bulls to lead the pair higher. Yet a pullback is also questionable amid a void of classic reversal signals.
