- Euro may be carving out double top below 0.87 figure vs. Pound
- Absence of reversal confirmation argues against triggering a trade
The Euro may be in the process of establishing a bearish Double Top chart pattern against the British Pound after prices rose to challenge one-month highs. The appearance of a Shooting Star candlestick pattern points to indecision and warns that a reversal lower may be brewing ahead.
Near-term support is at 0.8491, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a retest of rising trend line support at . Alternatively, a push above the 38.2% level at 0.8641 paves the way for a challenge of the 50% Fib at 0.8762.
The Shooting Star candle is an insufficient directional signal by itself without further confirmation, warning that entering a short trade is premature for now. With that in mind, opting for the sidelines seems most prudent until a more concrete setup emerges.
