Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.2710
  • Support: 1.2482, 1.2397, 1.2334
  • Resistance:1.2559, 1.2621, 1.2684

The Euro advanced against the US Dollar as expected after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the intersection of a falling trend line and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracementat 1.2559 exposes the 50% level at 1.2621. Alternatively, a reversal below rising trend line support at 1.2482opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.2397.

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).
