Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Euro locked in wide range below 6-month high vs. US Dollar
  • Setup inconclusive despite fading relative strength readings

The Euro has stalled after rising to the highest level in six months against the US Dollar, will prices oscillating in a wide range below the 1.13 figure. Fading relative strength studies point to ebbing upside momentum, but that is no sure sign of on-coming reversal and may only reflect consolidation.

Range top resistance is marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1272, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 38.2% level at 1.1374. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% expansion at 1.1209 exposes the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1.1104.

Current positioning does not seem to offer an attractive trading opportunity. Prices are too close to resistance to make a long bet attractive from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a clear-cut bearish reversal signal warns that taking the short side is premature. Staying flat seems best for now.
