EURUSD Breaks Key Support, Targets March 10th ECB Low


Over the weekend I mentioned the idea that a EURUSD daily close below 1.1060 would open the door to the potential for further weakness toward 1.0820, commonly referred to as the March 10th ECB low.

Not surprisingly, yesterday’s session picked up where Friday left off, putting the single currency below the 1.1060 handle against the US dollar.

For those who missed the Sunday commentary, the 1.1060 level is important for two distinct reasons:

  1. It has acted as a key pivot since March of 2015
  2. It’s the 50% Fibonacci retracement from the December 2015 low of 1.0515 to the 2016 high of 1.1615

Yesterday’s close should help fuel the recent bearish momentum caused by last week’s Brexit.

But as I also pointed out over the weekend, it’s important not to chase a market that has overextended itself, which could be the case with EURUSD. The pair is currently trading 160 pips below the 10 EMA on the daily chart, signaling that further consolidation may be necessary before sellers are willing to commit to another leg down.

I’ll continue to favor selling the Euro against the USD so long as the pair remains below 1.1060 on a daily closing basis. From here, there isn’t much standing in the way of a retest of the March 10th ECB low of 1.0820 with a break there exposing 1.0710 (minor support) followed by the current 2016 low of 1.0515.

I will wait another day. Want to take edge of inside bar strategy.

    An inside bar? A pinbar has already been formed from yesterday’s close.
    Although actually, a bearish close after a pin bar will confirm a perfect ell position for the following day..

I like this trade setup. Will wait for the EUR/USD to test the trend-line to go short.
