EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Short Trade Making Progress

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Short Trade Making Progress

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.2710
  • Support: 1.2500, 1.2316, 1.2140
  • Resistance:1.2759, 1.2852, 1.3070

The Euro looks to be resuming its down trend resumption following the completion of a Flag chart formation. Near-term support is in the 1.2500-34 area, marked by the October 3 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a daily close below that exposing the 38.2% level at 1.2316. Alternatively, a reversal above trend line resistance at 1.2759 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1.2852.

We sold EURUSD at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook, initially aiming for 1.2534. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.2886. Profits will be taken on half of the trade the stop-loss moved to breakeven after prices hit the first target.
