- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Euro soars to 6-month high vs US Dollar, hits long-term resistance
- Dominant trend still points down but actionable short signal absent
The Euro soared to the highest level in over six months against the US Dollar as troubling news-flow out of Washington DC sent the greenback scrambling. Prices are in digesting after four days of gains and a clear-cut trading opportunity does not seem readily apparent.
Resistance is now at 1.1181, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 61.8% level at 1.1261. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 38.2% Fib at 1.1100 – now recast as support – exposes the 23.6% expansion at 1.1000.
An entry order to sell EUR/USD at 1.0955 was triggered and the trade was subsequently stopped out. The dominant long-term trend continues to favor the downside but an actionable short trade setup is decidedly absent. With that in mind, opting for the sidelines seems prudent for now.
