EUR/USD Bulls Lose Steam As Dark Cloud Cover Pattern Emerges
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dark Cloud Cover Pattern Awaiting Confirmation
- Correction Questionable Amid Lack Of Bearish Signals
EUR/USDappears caught in a congestion ‘zone’ near 1.2700 as a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick formation awaits confirmation. While a Piercing Line pattern signaled a potential shift in sentiment the bulls have thus far been reluctant to charge. Some selling pressure is evident at the 1.2755 mark, which if broken may open an advance on the 1.2850 ceiling.
