EUR/USD Analysis

As expected, yesterday was a quiet day and we did get a smallish bullish bounce off a retest of the broken trend line from the bullish side, as I had expected was likely to happen. Despite that, there is not a lot of energy within this pair right now, though it seems poised for another bullish move. The pair is stuck between the broken trend line and the resistance zone above 1.3900 and we await the next impulsive move in any direction before taking further steps. The trend line is confluent with today’s GMT S1 daily pivot point, which should add to its supportive strength.

I do not see any reason to exit yet from any long trade that might have been taken yesterday off the trend line retest. If there is a break down below the trend line, this would be a sign we are going back to 1.3715 at least.

A candlestick analysis of the higher time frames shows bullishness except mild bearishness on the daily chart if we break today below yesterday’s low price.

As mentioned yesterday, we are within a widening bullish channel:

(EURUSD Signal 31214)

There are no important data releases scheduled today concerning the EUR or the USD so it is likely to be another quiet day.
