Forex: EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Near-Term Outlook Clouded

Forex: EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Near-Term Outlook Clouded

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Support: 1.3721 (50% Fib ret.), 1.3663 (61.8% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.3779 (38.2% Fib ret.), 1.3833 (channel bottom)

The Euro fell against the US Dollar as expectedbut technical positioning appears conflicted on where prices are likely to go from here. On one hand, a bounce from support at 1.3721, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, appears corrective in the context of breakdown from a rising channel set from early February. While that seems to offer improved risk/reward parameters to enter short in line with our long-term fundamental outlook, the formation of a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern casts doubt on the bearish argument. Furthermore, the near-term trading range is a mere 58 pips while 20-day ATR is at 75 pips, warning of an undue skew in risk/reward parameters when using a stop-loss activated on a daily closing basis (as is the case with our strategy). We will remain flat for now.
