The Euro managed to claw some lost territory against the US Dollar after find support below the 1.24 figure. Near-term support is in the 1.2357-60 area, marked by the November 7 low and the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1.2213. Alternatively, a turn above trend line resistance at 1.2535 clears the way for a challenge of the November 19 high at 1.2599.
We entered short EURUSD at 1.2710 in line with our long-term fundamental outlook and have since booked profit on half of the position. The rest of the trade remains open to capture any further downside momentum with a stop-loss at breakeven (1.2710).
