February 6, 2019: EUR/USD has lost its bullish breakout above 1.1420.


Since June 2018, the EUR/USD pair has been moving sideways with slight bearish tendency within the depicted bearish Channel (In RED).

On November 13, the EUR/USD pair demonstrated recent bullish recovery around 1.1220-1.1250 where the current bullish movement above the depicted short-term bullish channel (In BLUE) was initiated.

Bullish fixation above 1.1420 was needed to enhance further bullish movement towards 1.1520. However, the market has been demonstrating obvious bearish rejection around 1.1420 few times so far.

A further bullish advance was expected towards the price level of 1.1550 where the upper limit of both depicted channels (RED & BLUE) was located.

However, the EUR/USD pair has lost its bullish momentum since Thursday when a bearish engulfing candlestick was demonstrated around 1.1514. Thus, another descending high was established then.

Hence, the current bearish closure below 1.1420 terminates the current bullish movement (initiated on January 25) allowing another bearish visit towards 1.1350 and 1.1300.

Trade Recommendations:

Conservative traders should wait for the current bearish pullback to pursue towards the price zone of 1.1285-1.1300 (lower limit of the depicted movement channel) for a valid BUY entry.

T/P level to be located around 1.1350 and 1.1420. S/L to be located below 1.1250.
