Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3644
  • Support: 1.3366, 1.3324, 1.3208
  • Resistance:1.3396, 1.3454, 1.3512

The Euro fell as expected against the US Dollar after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Sellers are now eyeing support at 1.3366, the November 8 2013 close. A break below this boundary on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 1.3324. Alternatively, a move back above the 61.8% Fib at 1.3396 opens the door for a test of the 50% expansion at 1.3454.

We sold EURUSD at 1.3644 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook and have since booked profit on half of the position. The stop-loss on our remaining exposure has been moved to the breakeven level.
