EUR/USD Faces Consolidation Amid Absence Of Bearish Patterns
- Morning Star Pattern Suggested A Turn Higher
- Consolidation May Lie Ahead With Resistance Nearby
EUR/USD achieved the downside targets offered in recent candlestick reports. However, the downside risks have somewhat abated following the rise of a Morning Star near 1.2245. With bearish reversal signals lacking a pullback at this stage is questionable. At the same time sellers appear prepared to cap the pair at the 1.2620 mark. This in turn may suggest a consolidative period ahead.
Traders should note the upcoming FOMC Decision offers substantial fundamental event risk that may negate technical signals offered.
