Euro Quiet Consolidation Resumes
480 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The EURUSD has consolidated for most of this week and Monday’s low remains intact (as does Monday’s high). A break of Monday’s range (14146 or 13969) will set the trend for the week. A move to the upside would shift focus to 14200 and a bearish break would expose 13800/60 (Fibonacci measurement and former resistance). Many have jumped on the bearish bandwagon of late and the consolidation at the 14000 area (former pivot level in March and April) warrants a near term contrarian bullish stance in my opinion. There are multiple possibilities for wave structure-too many to take a strong stand on that basis alone right now.
