The Euro advanced against the US Dollar as expected after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracementat 1.2559 exposes the 1.2594-1.2621 area marked by a falling trend line set from mid-October and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal below rising trend line support at 1.2457opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.2374.
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).
