The Euro resumed its decline against the US Dollar following a brief digestion period, with the exchange rate now aiming to test below the 1.11 figure. The single currency marked a top as expectedafter prices produced a dramatic Shooting Star candlestick near the 1.16 threshold.
Near-term support is at 1.1067, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that confirmed on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 1.0937. Alternatively, a reversal back above support-turned-resistance marked by the April 25 low at 1.1215 exposes the 23.6% Fib at 1.1357.
A short EUR/USD position was activated at 1.1317. Subsequently, partial profits were taken as prices met the setup’s initial objective. The rest of the trade remains active, looking to capture deeper losses in the days ahead. The stop-loss has been adjusted to the breakeven level.
