EUR/USD Returns Gaze To Recent Lows Amid Void Of Bullish Patterns
- Strategy:Short (From 1.2480), Stop: 1.2500 (Daily Close), Target 1: 1.2360, Target 2: 1.2250
- Retreat From 1.2500 Handle May Continue Amid Absence of Bullish Signals
- Testing Intraday Support With Reversal Candlestick Patterns Lacking
EUR/USD has retreated from the psychologically-significant 1.2500 handle after it was left with little fuel from bullish candlestick patterns. This opens the prospect of a drift towards the recent lows and leaves shorts preferred. An initial downside target is offered by 1.2360, which if broken would potentially open a run on the 1.2250 mark.

The four hour chart reveals some intraday buying interest at the 1.2450 mark. Yet with bullish reversal patterns lacking the prospect of a rebound over the session ahead is questionable.
