Euro Short Term Triangle a Possibility
60 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The EURUSD has dropped to its lowest level since January and still lower prices look likely near term. Consolidation since Thursday may be taking the form of a triangle. In fact, completion of a corrective pattern and subsequent drop to a new low would compose 5 waves lower from 13935. A downside level to keep in mind is the mid January pivot at 13243. Strategically, I like shorting any bounces within the consolidation with a stop above 13566 and objective in the mid 13200s. We should then have an opportunity to play an early October reversal.
