- Euro selloff stalls after prices touch three-week low against the US Dollar
- Chart positioning suggests near-term trend bias still favors the downside
Euro selling pressure struggled to sustain momentum after a 6-day losing streak brought the currency to the lowest level in three weeks against the US Dollar. Still, a break of rising trend support set from early November seems to suggest the near-term bias continues to favor weakness.
A break below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1756 confirmed on a daily closing basis sees the next downside barrier at 1.1692, the 50% level. Alternatively, a bounce back above the 23.6% Fib at 1.1834 opens the door for a challenge of trend line support-turned-resistance, now at 1.1934.
The short EUR/USD position triggered at 1.1824 hit its initial profit target and partial profit has been booked. Remaining exposure continues to be in play to capture any follow-on weakness. The stop-loss has been trailed down to the breakeven even level.
