- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Doji highlights hesitation following break below 1.3500
- Absence of key reversal patterns casts doubt on a recovery
EUR/USD’s descent following the break of support at 1.3500 has stalled with a Doji formation indicating indecision from traders. However, the candlestick pattern is not classed as a bullish reversal signal, which leaves the prospect of a recovery for the pair as questionable. A retest of the 1.3500 handle would be seen as an opportunity to enter new short positions, while a daily close above the now-resistance level would invalidate a bearish technical bias.
EUR/USD: Retest Of 1.3500 To Offer New Short Entries
Drilling down to the four hour chart; a sea of Doji candlesticks near 1.3455 suggested significant hesitation from the Euro bears to push the single currency lower. However, similarly to the daily chart; key reversal patterns remain absent. This suggests a recovery may prove short-lived.
