Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.3800-31 (former resistance), 1.3765 (channel bottom)
  • Resistance: 1.3892-1.3911 (Dec 27 high, 38.2% Fib exp.), 1.3939 (channel top)

The Euro is making cautious headway downward against the US Dollar as expected after showing a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance in the 1.3892-1.3911 area, marked by the December 27 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. Support is in the 1.3800-31 region, a former double top, with a drop back through that eyeing a rising channel bottom at 1.3765. Alternatively a break above resistance targets the channel top at 1.3939

Our long-term fundamental outlook favors losses but risk/reward considerations argue against entering short for now. We will wait for confirmation on a daily close below the channel bottom to initiate the trade.
