EUR/USD Analysis

As expected, yesterday was a fairly quiet day for this pair, and today will probably be the same. The price tumbled to hit a level close to local support at 1.1780, before rising relatively sharply to end up more or less back where it started this week. This shows we have had a certain degree of buying with higher lows, giving credence to the case that it is time for a bullish pull back. However, I am reluctant to look for a long in such a strong bearish trend and at such a low price, even though the overall odds in the event of a trend reversal could make this, statistically, a good trade.

The likely resistance I had identified overhead at 1.1893 has not yet been reached, and if this level is hit today and then followed by bearish price action, I would look for a short there and a resumption of the downwards trend.

There might well be support close to 1.1750 but I would not look for a long trade there.

My colleague Christopher Lewis is bullish between 1.1800 and 1.2000.
