The Euro sank to the lowest level in over two years against the US Dollar, with sellers claiming a foothold below the 1.25 figure. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2428 exposes the 50% level at 1.2286. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib at 1.2603 opens the door for a test of trend line resistance at 1.2713.
We sold EURUSD at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook subsequently booked profit on half of the position. The remainder of the trade is open to capture any further downside momentum with a stop-loss trailed to breakeven (1.2710).
