EURUSD: Waiting for Short Trade Setup to Emerge

Ilya Spivak

Strategy: Flat

Prices are testing above falling trend line resistance established from the June 18 high, with a break higher exposing the horizontal support-turned-resistance barrier at 1.2442. Support lines up at the bottom of a rising channel set from the July 24 low, now at 1.2280, with a break below that targeting the 1.2133-61 area marked by the July 13 and August 2 swing lows. We remain broadly bearish but risk/reward considerations argue against entering a trade at current levels and we will stand aside for now.
