We entered short EUR/USD at 1.3757 as prices formed a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, signaling a move lower in line with our fundamental outlook. The downturn’s latest leg began as expected as the pair produced a Shooting Star candlefollowing a brief upswing. The stop-loss has now been revised to trigger on a daily close above January 24 high at 1.3738.The first long-term objective remains 1.3209.
The bottom of a falling channel set from late December has stepped in as interim support. A rebound from this level that produces a close above 1.3574, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 38.2% level at 1.3635. Near-term support is now at 1.3476, the February 3 low.
