EURUSD: Bearish Butterfly Pattern Signals Reversal

OANDA:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
The EURUSD pair is currently forming a Bearish Butterfly Harmonic Pattern (XABCD), a classic reversal structure frequently observed in technical analysis. The Butterfly Pattern suggests that the current bullish momentum may soon exhaust, giving way to a potential bearish trend.

Potential Reversal Zone (PRZ):
Point D, at the completion of the Butterfly pattern, is identified as a Potential Reversal Zone (PRZ). This zone is critically important for several reasons:

  1. Key Resistance Area: The PRZ aligns with a significant resistance level, historically indicating strong selling pressure.
  2. 4-Hour Trend Line: The zone coincides with a downward sloping trend line on the 4-hour chart, reinforcing the bearish outlook.
  3. 61.8% Fibonacci Retracement: The PRZ is also at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the preceding move, adding another layer of confluence to our bearish bias.

Entry and Risk Management:
Given the confluence of technical indicators at the PRZ, we anticipate a trend reversal to bearish from Point D. Our proposed trading strategy is as follows:

  • Entry Point: 1.08865
  • Stop Loss: 1.09030
The stop loss is strategically placed above the PRZ to protect against potential false breakouts and limit downside risk.

Take Profit Levels:
To effectively manage our positions and lock in profits, we have set multiple take profit levels:

  • TP-1: 1.08700
  • TP-2: 1.08535
  • TP-3: 1.08370

These targets are derived from previous support levels and the harmonic pattern projections.

The confluence of the Bearish Butterfly pattern, key resistance, trend line, and Fibonacci level significantly strengthens the bearish case for EURUSD at Point D. By entering the market at 1.08865 with a stop loss at 1.09030, and targeting the specified take profit levels, traders can capitalize on the anticipated bearish reversal while maintaining disciplined risk management.
