EUR has finally reached the month-long downside target at
1.1558 just in time for the end of the May. It actually
exceeded the target by 45 pips before reversing higher and
creating the first strong green candles of buying intent the
market has seen for months now. But the counter rally is
running out of momentum now whilst DXY holds above 94.
Initial resistance for EUR lies here at the 1.1676 line and
extends to the line above at 1.1731. This range, bounded by
the two lines, is likely to prove insurmountable in the very
near term - it will need DXY itself to break below 94 to break
the upper parallel here - in which case the bears will retreat
further here too and it should then rally 90 or so pips higher
still to 1.1821 on more bear closing before falling away again.
That looks to be best case scenario for EUR from here though.
(At the same time DXY should then fall to test the 93.36-93.12
range and then bounce higher again.)
So long as 94 holds up on DXY the Euro is likely to remain
trapped within the medium term downtrend of April/May and
likely to fall away from the upper parallel once more when
But this time around the next sell off from the upper parallel
of the larger impulse wave has a reasonable chance of
creating a around the 1.1558-1.1540 range
when it does fall away again - so any fresh shorts taken out
around current levels need closing down again here. Any
subsequent fall below 1.1535 will then be needed to trigger
fresh shorts from here back to the 1.1318-1.1287 range.
