EUR/USD Awaiting Cues From Candlesticks Near 1.2755 Ceiling

EUR/USD Awaiting Cues From Candlesticks Near 1.2755 Ceiling

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover Receives Lackluster Response
  • Range Between 1.2500 and 1.2755 Endures

EUR/USD remains confined within a range between 1.2500 and 1.2755 with recent candlestick reversal signals failing to find follow-through. A breakout above the 1.2755 ceiling would pave the way for a potential push towards former support-turned-resistance at 1.2850. While in the alternative scenario, a close below the 1.2500 floor would be required to open the next leg lower to the late August 2012 low at 1.2250.
