EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Aiming to Short Above 1.2700

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Aiming to Short Above 1.2700

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short at 1.2710
  • Support: 1.2500, 1.2316, 1.2140
  • Resistance:1.2764, 1.2852, 1.3070

The Euro appears to be resuming the dominant down trend against the US Dollar after rebounding from the 1.25 figure, as expected. A daily close below support in the 1.2500-34 area marked by the October 3 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion exposes the 38.2% level at 1.2316. Alternatively, a turn above channel support-turned-resistance at 1.2764 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1.2852.

Risk/reward considerations are skewed against entering short at current levels and we will establish a pending order to sell the pair at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. If triggered, the trade will initially target 1.2534 with a stop-loss activated on a daily close above 1.2886.
