EUR/USD Candlestick Analysis: Euro May Correct Higher

EUR/USD Candlestick Analysis: Euro May Correct Higher

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Strategy: Flat
  • Familiar Range Above 1.05 Still in Play
  • Candle Setup May Yet Yield Recovery

The Euro continues to tread water against its US counterpart, with prices drifting in a choppy range above the 1.05 figure. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0535 exposes the intersection of a multi-year channel floor and the 23.6% level at 1.0217. Alternatively, a move above the 14.6% Fib retracement at 1.0973 targets the 23.6% threshold at 1.1291.

A bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern completed in mid-March remains valid and may yet be followed by a more substantive recovery. We intend to treat any such gains as corrective in line with our long-term bearish fundamental outlook and wait for a short setup to crystallize after upside momentum fades.
