Talking Points



  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Doji suggests hesitation from the bulls near the critical 1.3900 handle
  • Range-trading strategies preferred on intraday timeframes





    EUR/USD's consolidation between 1.3780 and 1.3900 has persisted with the most recent pullback from the range-top prompting the formation of a Dojicandlestick. The formation suggests signs of indecision from traders and the potential for a pull-back towards the range-bottom. The current environment favors range-trading strategies that may be best-served by examining intraday price action on the four-hour chart.
