Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3757
  • Support: 1.3584 (23.6% Fib exp.), 1.3523 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 1.3652 (channel top), 1.3682 (Feb 11 high)

We continue to hold shortEuro against the US Dollar at 1.3757 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. The pair is now recoiling downward after putting in a Shooting Star candle below falling channel resistance (now at 1.3652). A daily close below 1.3584, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, targets the 38.2% level at 1.3523.

Our first major objective remains at 1.3209 (the 23.6% Fib expansion formed by the April 2011 high, the July 2012 low, and the December 2013 top). A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.3738, the January 24 high.
