Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3757
  • Support: 1.3639 (channel top), 1.3549 (trend line)
  • Resistance: 1.3698 (Jan 14 high), 1.3738 (Jan 24 high)

We continue to hold short Euro against the US Dollar at 1.3757 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. Prices have mounted a sharp recovery, with EUR/USD testing above resistance at 1.3698 marked by the January 14 high. Breaking above this boundary on a daily closing basis initially exposes the January 24 top at 1.3738. A subsequent close above the latter level will activate our stop-loss and we will exit the trade to wait for new selling opportunities. Alternatively, a reversal below falling channel resistance-turned support at 1.3639 targets a falling trend line established from late December, now at 1.3549.
