- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.0623
- Euro down trend resumption vs. US Dollar may be gaining momentum
- Break of chart support suggests prices aiming to test below 1.06 figure
The Euro looks vulnerable to deeper losses after dropping to the lowest level in a month against the US Dollar, with prices seemingly poised to test below the 1.06 figure. The single currency reversed downward as expected after a test above the 1.08 threshold, completing a bearish Rising Wedge chart pattern.
A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0643 has exposed the 23.6% level at 1.0528 as the next downside barrier. A further push below that targets the 38.2% Fib at 1.0341. Alternatively, a reversal back above 1.0643 sees the next major upside threshold at 1.0828, the 38.2% Fib retracement.
Euro down trend resumption seems to be finding follow-through and a short position has been activated at 1.0623. The trade initially targets 1.0528. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.0682. Profit will be taken on half of open exposure and the stop-loss moved to breakeven when the first objective is met.
