-I wrote Tuesday that “EURUSD action in recent days may compose a triangle pattern. Triangles sometimes form before a final ‘blow-off’. In this case, a triangle measurement is 1.3915 (if price holds above 1.3708), which is in line with the long term trendline (see next sentence).” The triangle played out although the ‘thrust’ was especially weak. Price didn’t even break to a YTD high. Perhaps the weak ‘thrust’ suggests an especially vulnerable market.

-An outside day reversal unfolded (price actually engulfs the prior 7 days).

-Recent support is now resistance from 1.3720 to about 1.3755.
