Today’s EUR/USD Signals

Risk 0.75%.

Trades may only be taken before 5pm London time today.

Short Trades

  • Short entry following a bearish price action reversal on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 1.1315 or 1.1357.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the price reaches 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

Long Trade

  • Long entry following a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 1.1256.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the price reaches 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the picture was mixed: medium-term bearish trend, but a strong rejection of the bottom of a multi-week range. This suggested the price was quite likely to rise further, but it will be slow and will be a struggle, so trading this pair should be difficult over the short-term. This was a pretty good call as the price did continue to rise before falling back to now create a potentially highly significant double bottom at 1.1256. The price tried to rise but struggled.

I think we are at a long-term pivotal moment here, where the price will either break below 1.1250 and move down from this long-term range or rise to get established above 1.1340 and remain within its medium-term range between 1.1250 and 1.1500. The problem for bulls is that the Euro is generally quite weak, and the Eurozone looks like slowing. I have no bias today but a strong break below 1.1250 could be interesting for bears.
