EUR/USD Doji Signals Bears Lacking Conviction At A Technical Barrier

EUR/USD Doji Signals Bears Lacking Conviction At A Technical Barrier

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Suggests Reluctance From The Bears Near 1.2620
  • Bullish Reversal Signals Absent In Intraday Trade

EUR/USD has regained its footing at the 1.2620 barrier as a Doji denotes indecision from traders. Yet with bullish reversal signals absent a close beneath the 1.2620 barrier would open a descent on 1.2500. A clean run lower may prove difficult given recent ‘messy’ price action.

The four hour chart tells a similar narrative to the daily. A parade of short body candles and Doji formations suggests reluctance from traders to lead the pair in any direction. Yet an absence of bullish candlestick patterns suggests a recovery over the session ahead may prove difficult. Clearance of the 1.2600/20 region would pave the way for a push towards the 1.2500 floor.
