EUR/USD Awaiting Clearer Guidance As Range Endures

EUR/USD Awaiting Clearer Guidance As Range Endures

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Short, Stop: 1.2500 (Close), Target: 1.2270
  • Struggles Below Key Level With Candlestick Signals Lacking
  • Shooting Star Signaled An Early Warning For A Retreat

EUR/USD’s consolidation between the 1.2360 and 1.2500 trading band continues, with clear cues from candlesticks lacking. Yet in the context of a medium-term downtrend the pair may be set to revisit the recent lows near 1.2360. Beneath which would put the August 2012 trough at 1.2250 in sight. A close above 1.2500 would be required to negate a short-term bearish technical bias.
