Is this a triple bottom for EURUSD or consolidation before the next leg lower?

Watch the video below to see my thoughts on the euro.

Don’t forget to scroll down for more commentary and an annotated chart.

EURUSD is sitting on a critical support level today.

We’ve discussed the significance of this 1.0900/30 support area in recent posts and videos.

You can see how the euro encountered buyers here on September 3 and again on the 12th.

I also mentioned the area just below 1.1000 recently.

Notice how EURUSD held above this level between the 11th and 24th before closing below it on Wednesday.

But this is where things get tricky.

Without factoring in the broader descending channel from 2018, one would expect EURUSD to continue much lower if 1.0930 support fails.

There’s a problem with that, though.

The problem is that we do have a broader channel that began in August 2018.

In fact, that level could extend as far back as the November 2017 low depending on how you draw it.

The problem, then, with the idea of a much lower EURUSD is the fact that 2018 (perhaps 2017) channel support comes in at 1.0900.

That doesn’t allow much downside potential here.

Of course, just because channel support comes in at 1.0900 doesn’t mean the pair must respect it.

Markets break support and resistance levels all the time.

That said, I wouldn’t want to sell the euro down here knowing that a thirteen-month support level is just 60 pips below the current price.

On the flip side, buying the euro doesn’t sound appealing either.

We have key resistance at 1.0990 followed by the smaller descending channel top near 1.1030/40.

And don’t forget about the 1.1070 horizontal level.

All in all, the EURUSD is going to need to break free from this range between 1.0900 and 1.1070 before we see a favorable opportunity.

You could, of course, attempt trading between the levels shown below.

But if you’re a breakout/swing trader like myself, you will probably want to wait for some clarity and momentum before trading the euro.

Good sir, I shear your view on EURUSD. I see more opportunity buying EURUSD than selling it. Already, the EURUSD has formed triple bottom indicating a market ready to swing high. Anyway, this is my opinion.

Hi there!…The Eurodollar has once again touched the current low of the year…it appears as if the smart money is working it…they will want to give some thing to retail traders. Some pattern that will make retail traders take the wrong side of the trade. ..

Thank you Justin for another great insight and alerting me to the EURO triple bottom. The Pair did hit your decending larger channel bottom and price immediately rejected it just before the end of the day with the daily close 11 pips higher at 1.0918. So for now the direction is up until we see it breach that higher resistance level as you mentioned. I have decided to trade this one as i think it is fairly safe. Looking forward to more insights. Thanks again.

EURUSD needs a push, one way or the other , to get out of the range….and the push is likely to be 31 Oct…

Justin, I agree with Sifiso that the smart money’s just waiting for a liquidity pool of buyers just below that level to take them out and fill their orders, but they could also go deeper and create an inverted head and shoulders as we already see the triple bottom.

Hi Freddie!…My worry with trading before smart money closes for the medium term is that they will take either side of any position just before they close( accumulate positions) then evaluate their books as the new quarter starts, if more stops with more money lie on the upside, they will then hunt them and the opposite is true if more stops with more money lie on the downside. In other words a lot of retail traders will be trapped using typical retail traders technical patterns only to loose money before the real market maker trend for the quarter is established….( THE PRICE ACTION THAT MOST RETAIL TRADERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND).
