Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price amp; Time: Today's Close in the Euro Should Prove Important

The New York close in EUR/USD should prove important. The reversal last week came at the right time from a cyclical perspective which has had us looking for an August correction in the euro. The rally on Friday back over 1.3400 looked like a promising start, but the aggressive weakness this morning is putting this positive immediate positive view in serious jeopardy. There is still some chance that this move lower is just a re-test of last week’s low, but for this to be the case we will need to see 1.3330 hold on a closing basis (and ideally 1.3360) followed by a steady move higher over the next couple of days. A daily close below 1.3330 would favor more weakness into the next cyclical turn window seen around the first part of next week.
