EUR/USD Approaches 1.2500 Ceiling With A Piercing Line In Its Wake
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Bullish Candlestick Pattern Awaits Validation
- H4 Chart Reveals Lack Of Intraday Reversal Patterns

Given the presence of a short-term downtrend and the proximity to the nearby 1.2500 ceiling, a further recovery may prove difficult. A resumption of its downward trajectory would likely see buying interest renewed at the 1.2360 floor.
