Chart Of The Day For December 17th,2014 – EUR/USD
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2491, 1.2397, 1.2340
- Resistance:1.2566, 1.2642, 1.2735
The Euro advanced against the US Dollar as expected having completed a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.2566, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 1.2642. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 1.2491 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 1.2397.
Our long-term outlook calls for a broadly stronger US Dollar against its key counterparts. With that in mind, we will treat the ongoing EURUSD bounce as a chance to get short at more attractive levels once a clear-cut trade setup presents itself rather than a buying opportunity.
