EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Down Trend Back in Play?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Down Trend Back in Play?

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.2710
  • Support: 1.2374, 1.2312, 1.2249
  • Resistance:1.2451, 1.2559, 1.2621

The Euro may be readying to turn lower anew against the US Dollar following the formation of a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A narrow close below 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2451 appears to have exposed the 38.2% level at 1.2374, with a further drop below that targeting the 50% Fib at 1.2312. Alternatively, a bounce back above 1.2451 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.2559.

We entered short EURUSD at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook and have since booked profit on half of the position. The rest of the trade remains open to capture any further downside momentum with a stop-loss at breakeven (1.2710).
