EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Topping Near 1.15 Figure?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Topping Near 1.15 Figure?

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Euro may be carving out a top near 1.15 figure vs. US Dollar
  • Confirmation needed for an actionable short trade opportunity

The Euro put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick below the 1.1500 threshold against the US Dollar, hinting a move lower may be in the cards. Negative RSI divergence hints at ebbing upside momentum and bolsters the case for a downside scenario.

Near-term support is in the 1.1285-1.1313 area (former resistance, July 5 low), with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.1138. Alternatively, a push above the 1.1490-1.1519 zone (July 12 high, 23.6% Fib expansion) targets 1.1616 (May 2016 high).

While the technical argument for a downturn seems compelling, confirmation remains elusive while the series of higher highs and lows set from mid-April remains intact. Furthermore, sentiment studies continue to argue for an upside bias. With that in mind, staying flat seems most appealing for now.
