EURUSD Technical Analysis
EURUSD posted moderate weakness in the Forex market following the European Central Bank (ECB) chairman Mario Draghi’s Quantitative Easing (QE) measures. We have been mesmerized by the Japanese ‘Inverted Hammer’ on the monthly chart near a firm support level. Interestingly enough, FX traders reacted positively to the news the ECB council is displeased with Mario Draghi, which was interpreted to a fair rally in Euro-Dollar.
Similar to our Dow Jones technical analysis, we are using the 4hr chart for our long entry in EURUSD. The market has painted a reversed Head-And-Shoulders (H&S) where the right-hand shoulder was recently affirmed at the time of this writing. Due to the length of the shadow, a deeper retracement towards 1.2459 cannot be negated but does not disturb the bullish projection for EURUSD. Our trading strategy is based on multiple time frames to ensure a decent Risk Ratio (RR) is maintained.

The location of the protective stop loss order was a difficult decision. Based on the monthly chart, the stop loss order should be placed at 1.2391, approximately +100 pips stop. However, as the analysis is based on the 4hr chart , we have decided to dismiss the monthly stop and set the order at 1.2412. The bullish target for our technical strategy is at 1.2660.
