Forex: EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Top Found Above 1.39 Level?

Forex: EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Top Found Above 1.39 Level?

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.3800-31 (former resistance), 1.3744 (channel bottom)
  • Resistance: 1.3892-1.3911 (Dec 27 high, 38.2% Fib exp.), 1.4045 (50% Fib exp.)

The Euro may be starting to send early signals of a reversal lower against the US Dollar. Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance in the 1.3892-1.3911 area, marked by the December 27 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. The barrier is further reinforced by a rising channel top. Support is in the 1.3800-31 region, a former double top, with a slide back through that eyeing the channel bottom at 1.3744. Alternatively a break above resistance targets the 50% Fib at 1.4045.

Our long-term fundamental outlook favors the downside but a Shooting Star is not a concrete-enough signal to enter short. We will wait for confirmation on a daily close below the channel bottom to initiate the trade.
