analytics5a40e1b1db003.jpg

Technical outlook:

The EUR/USD pair continues to drift within a tight trading range after hitting 1.1900 levels last week. At this point in time, it is producing an engulfing bearish candlestick pattern indicating a potential bearish drop. The rally from 1.1720 levels was also corrective in nature a-b-c which got complete at 1.1900 levels. A channel drawn across the boundary also suggests that correction is over and bearish move should continue. To simplify, till price remain below 1.1960 levels, the EURUSD pair should be looking to push lower. The wave structure also suggests that the pair might have formed a meaningful top in place at 1.2092 levels and should be looking to drop much lower below 1.1550 levels going forward.

Trading plan:

Please remain short for now, stop above 1.1960 and target 1.1550 levels at least.
