EUR/USD Analysis

This pair has been in an upwards channel since early November’s pull back from the sharp fall from 1.3830 to below 1.3300. The pair is now struggling to make new highs and broke an inner trend line on Friday, so appears well-positioned for a short:

EURUSD H4 12213

There is resistance overhead at around 1.3650. A large pin bar rejecting 1.3650 and the trend line would be an excellent prompt to go short.

Bernanke is speaking at 1:30pm London time today so the price may swing wildly around that time.
