EUR/USD Downside Risks Remain In Absence of Reversal Candlesticks

Talking Points

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Pattern Fails To Find Confirmation
  • Break Of Nearby Support To Open 1.3100 Target

The Euro is set for a make-or-break moment on a test of the recent lows near 1.3320 with bullish reversal signals absent. Given the proximity to nearby buying support at 1.3320 new shorts may be better served on a downside break. This would set the stage for a push to the September 2013 lows near 1.3100.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a Hammer formation near 1.3340 offered an indication for an intraday recovery for EUR/USD. However, since resuming its descent there is glaring absence of reversal signals which suggests a recovery for the pair over the session ahead may prove difficult.
