EUR/USD Price Analysis: Inverted hammer hints at corrective bounce


Share:
  • EUR/USD could be in for a corrective bounce, having printed an inverted hammer on Friday. 
  • Friday's inverted hammer is backed by an oversold reading on a key daily chart indicator. 

EUR/USD produced an inverted hammer candle on Friday, confirming the below-30 or oversold readings on the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) and opening the doors for a corrective bounce. 

An inverted hammer comprises long upper shadow, small body and little or no lower wick. The pattern typically appears after a prolonged downtrend, as is the case here, and indicates the buyers are beginning to test sellers' resolve to keep the rate lower - an early sign of bullish reversal. 

Alongside that, the hourly chart RSI is reporting a bullish divergence. 

The pair may rise to the descending 5-day average at 1.0858, above which the next resistance is located at 1.0917 (10-day average). 

The inverted hammer would be invalidated if the pair finds acceptance under 1.0827. That would bring in additional losses to 1.08. The spot is currently trading at 1.0836.
