    Chart Of The Day For October 27th, 2015 – EUR/USD

    Talking Points:

    • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.1057
    • Break of 7-Month Trend Line Support Hints Long-Term Euro Down Trend Resuming
    • Short Trade Triggered, Initially Targeting Move Back Below 1.10 Figure vs. US Dollar

    The Euro looks to be resuming its long-term down trend against the US Dollar after a break of support marked by a rising trend line set from mid-March. Prices topped and turned lower as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern.

    From here, a daily close below the October 23 low at 1.0996 opens the door for a test of double bottom support marked by the May 27 bottom at 1.0818. Alternatively, a move back above the trend line and horizontal support-turned-resistance at 1.1118 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.1187.

    We will now enter short, initially targeting 1.0996. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.1118. We will take profit on half of the position and trail the stop-loss to the breakevenlevel once the first objective is reached.
