Last week saw global markets fluctuate between corporate earnings and geopolitical conflicts. There was an excess of negative news out of Israel and eastern Ukraine, with each region’s headlines countering much of the decent U.S. and European quarterly earnings reports.

- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3644
- Support: 1.3396, 1.3324, 1.3208
- Resistance:1.3454, 1.3502-12, 1.3583
The Euro fell as expected against the US Dollar after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Sellers are now eyeing support at 1.3396, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion. A daily close below this boundary initially exposes the 76.4% level at 1.3324. Alternatively, a move back above the 50% Fib at 1.3454 opens the door for a test of the 1.3502-12 area, marked by the 38.2% expansion and the June 5 low.
We sold EURUSD at 1.3644 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook and have since booked profit on half of the position. The stop-loss on our remaining exposure has been moved to the breakeven level.
