The Euro has stalled at support below the 0.89 figure against the British Pound following an expected drop after the appearance of a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. That down move broke support guiding the uptrend mid-June, seemingly arguing for bearish continuation. A push through the 0.8881-0.8873 area may open the door to challenge the 0.8798-0.8815 region.
A look at the daily chart warns against entering short too readily however. Prices appear to be wedged between former support recast as resistance and a former upside barrier guiding the down move since mid-October 2017, itself now reframed as a downside hurdle.
This makes for inconclusive positioning. On one hand, the recent support break argues for weakness. On the other, a longer-term upside reversal is yet to be invalidated. In either case, prices are too close to support to make a short trade appealing from a risk/reward perspective. Staying flat seems prudent for now.
