EUR/USD begins to turn lower once more
EUR/USD turned lower yesterday, following on from a rally into trendline resistance earlier in the week. That said, the one key hurdle to get past for a continuation of the sell-off would come at $1.1189, which now forms a double top pattern.
As such, while a bearish outlook remains, any new positions would make sense upon seeing an hourly close below $1.1189 to lessen the potential for another bounce. We would need to see an hourly close above $1.1239 to negate this bearish view.
