EUR/USD 1.2934; Former Support Turned Resistance
240 Minute Bars
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
FOREXAnalysis: Wrote yesterday that “the EURUSD has penetrated an internal trendline (former diagonal resistance line) and closed beneath the important 1.2934 (61.8% retracement AND the close of the 4/4 reversal day). Bigger picture, a head and shoulders top would be confirmed on a drop below 1.2743.” Thursday’s action reinforces 1.2934 as one of importance. The high was 1.2929. Look lower although a push above 1.2934 wouldn’t negate anything bearish. Only above 1.3028 would call the downtrend into question.
FOREX Trading Strategy: No change - Breakout trading is warranted. I’m bearish against 1.3035. Look for resistance near the downward sloping dashed line in the coming days…the line is at about 1.2932 on Friday.
