FOREX Technical Analysis: EUR/USD Support Zone Holds on Late Day Test
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
FOREXAnalysis: A yearlong bottoming pattern has been confirmed as complete and the first EURUSD objective isn’t until above 13800 (61.8% of decline from 2011 high and where the rally from the 2012 low would consist of 2 equal legs). The late day selloff found support where one would expect, at former congestion (13247/67). The black line is the 5 day average, which tends to hold on a closing basis in extremely strong trends. In other words, it’s possible that the decline from 13403 is complete.
FOREX Trading Strategy: I’m long from 13275. 13150-13200 is estimated support (50%-61.8% retracements of rally from 1/4 low). Given the significance of the longer term bottoming pattern, I’m willing to stay bullish as long as price is above 13100.
LEVELS: 13152 13200 13247 13330 13380 13403
