    Chart Of The Day For September 25th, 2015 – EUR/USD

    Talking Points:

    • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
    • Euro Pausing to Digest Losses After Finding Support Above 1.11 Figure
    • Lackluster Follow-Through, Choppy Ranges Make for Inconclusive Setup

    The Euro paused to consolidate having declined as expected after prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. The pair has struggled with directional conviction since spiking to a seven-month high in late August. Seemingly noteworthy technical breaks have not found follow-through and sliding ATR readings are pointing to ebbing volatility.

    Looking ahead, a break below horizontal shelf support at 1.1113 exposes 1.1016, a barrier marked by a rising trend line in play since March and the August 18 low. Alternatively, a move above the September 24 high at 1.1296 clears the way for a challenge of the September 18 swing top at 1.1459.

    Positioning is inconclusive at this point. Prices are oscillating in an increasingly choppy range, offering no actionable trade setups to compel us to take a trade. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines and wait for greater clarity to emerge before establishing exposure.

    Central Banks “Pretend and Extend” Intact

    October continues its positive trend: Friday’s disappointing non-farm payroll (NFP) report has the market repricing the Fed’s first-rate liftoff in a decade (October +5%, December +28% and dropping fast, March 2016 +50%). Yesterday’s disappointing weakness in the U.S services ISM continues to translate into risk-on flows into the U.S. as “lower for longer” rate policies […]
