Euro Holding Trendline-Large Range Provides Reference Points

Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The simple truth is that there is evidence to support both sides for EURUSD (always is). From an EW perspective, I don’t see much clarity. The decline from 14548 is impulsive but possibly wave c of a flat as everything into the July low is better counted as corrective. What’s more, recent weakness has stalled at a former resistance line and the May low. Sentiment is incredibly negative (today’s WSJ front page headline is ‘Euro Woes…’) but no one likes the USD either so that’s a wash. But fundamentals tend to line up during 3rd waves and being long and wrong here would be more wrong than being short and wrong. If the larger trend has turned down and a break is around the corner, a pop near term into 14200 seems in order if only to correct the sharp drop from 14548. Play the range until it breaks (a wise man once said ‘act on the temporary, it may become the permanent’).
