EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Resistance Seen Below 1.28

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Resistance Seen Below 1.28

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2615, 1.2507, 1.2332
  • Resistance:1.2783, 1.2958, 1.3100

The Euro moved higher as expected against the US Dollar after prices produced a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.2783, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.2958. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.2615 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 1.2507.

We booked profits on a Euro short position last week and will now look for a new selling opportunity in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. As it stands, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests entering currently is premature.
