- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Support: 1.3779 (38.2% Fib ret.), 1.3721 (50% Fib ret.)
- Resistance: 1.3842-50 (23.6% Fib ret., channel floor)
The Euro fell against the US Dollar as expected but we opted not to enter shortin line with our long-term fundamental outlook amid conflicted technical positioning.This proved prudent: prices edged above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.3779, exposing the 1.3842-50 region marked by a recently broken falling channel bottom and the 23.6% level. A daily close above this boundary threatens to open the door for a move above the 1.39 figure. Alternatively, a move back below 1.3779 targets the 50% Fib at 1.3721. We will continue to stand aside for now, looking for a retest of the channel bottom to produce a short trade opportunity.
