06 Jan – EURUSD – Short

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
As expected EURUSD             found a top around 1.0950 area and made a substantial move down. After consolidation between 1.0940-1.0900, the pair finally broke to the downside.
The long term view remains short. The price should resume its downtrend from now onward.
After making new lows, the price retraced towards former support and now resistance .

The pair is trading below 21 and 55 moving average, which indicates an aggressive bearishness. Given the oversold stochastic , we should see some correction move up, which is now taking place.
This is an opportunity to sell EURUSD             or add to existing short positions.
The long term view remains short.

As we don’t know how large the correction will be but I can choose few points of entry.

I have identified two points of resistance and divided the position in two:
The first goes in @ 1.0785 at most recent resistance
Second @ 1.0850 – Deeper correction might be in play.

I chose to discount stochastic being oversold as I expect it to catch up with the price action, which takes priority over lagging indicators.
