EUR/USD: Technical outlook and review...

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
477 0 3
Following the open 1.1356, bids established intraday support above the mid-level number 1.1350, and shortly after a ceiling of offers were seen forming around the 1.1373 mark. It was only once London opened for business did we see things begin to liven up. Strong sellers stepped in and pushed the EUR below 1.1350 and reached lows of 1. 1305             on the day.

So, with the above in mind, what do we have here?

1. A distinct bearish pin candle formed deep within supply at 1.1532-1.1278 during last week’s trade. This, at least to us, hints a further sell-off may take place this week.

2. From the daily chart , we can see that price retested the underside of an ignored Quasimodo level at 1.1372 yesterday. Should the sellers remain in good form below this level, there’s very little reason why this market will not continue to depreciate down to demand sitting at 1.1211-1.1268.


3. Since the higher timeframe picture indicates further downside is possible in this market today/this week, we are looking at the following areas to trade short from, targeting 1.1300 as our first take-profit area:

• Mid-level resistance 1.1350. This level was not retested on the 4hr view following yesterday’s break, hence there may be unfilled sell orders still lurking around this barrier (lower timeframe confirmation required).

• Supply at 1.1378-1.1362. This area sits just above 1.1350 and looks not only to be a perfect zone for well-funded traders to fakeout to above 1.1350, it also encapsulates the aforementioned ignored daily Quasimodo level. Stops are likely huddled tightly just above 1.1350. We know this, and so do players who move price! Therefore, be prepared for a fake above 1.1350 (hence confirmation needed at 1.1350 if you intend to short there) into this supply today as it could make for a lovely short trade. We would, dependent on how price approached this zone and the time of day, likely be confident enough to enter at market here, given its location.

Levels to watch/live orders:

• Buys: Flat (Stop loss: N/A).
• Sells: 1.1350 Tentative – confirmation required (Stop loss: dependent on where one confirms this level) 1.1358 (Stop loss: 1.1380).
