- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.1276, 1.1185, 1.0970
- Resistance:1.1533, 1.1659, 1.1832
The Euro remains in digestion mode after bottoming as expected against the US Dollar following the appearance of a bullish Morning Star candle pattern. A daily close above the February 3 high at 1.1533 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.1659. Alternatively, a reversal below the 1.1276-1318 area (January 30 close, 14.6% Fib expansion) opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 1.1185.
We expect any on-coming EURUSD strength to be corrective, in line with our long-term outlook. With that in mind, we will treat upside momentum as an opportunity to enter short at a more attractive level and remain on the sidelines in the interim.
