- Support: 1.2500, 1.2316, 1.2140
- Resistance:1.2805, 1.2852, 1.3070
The Euro drifted higher against the US Dollar in a move that appears corrective in the context of last week’s Flag breakout marking bearish trend resumption. 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 1.2805 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1.2852.
We entered short EURUSD at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook, initially targeting 1.2534. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 1.2886. We will take profit on half of the position and move the stop-loss to breakeven once the first objective is reached.
