Decision Time For The EUR/USD – FX Market Analysis 1/26/16
Decision Time For The EUR/USD
After last weeks drop on the Draghi comments the EUR/USD has really showed very little reaction. With that being said the 200EMA on the 1H is holding still and for me it acts as an extremely reliable floating reference for directional bias. As long as that level holds then the potential for further downside is the higher probability. In regards to short term market trend which we refer to as market cycle, we do not have a valid cycle to speak of. Right now we have very limited manipulation points to work from in a close proximity to the current price. With that being said I will be trading from the current listed levels on the chart and would trade any valid stop run from them.

Key Level Approaching For The Pound
The GBP/USD is in a very interesting point. On one hand we are quite extended to the downside and therefore any retracement that gets going could be substantial. A great example of that is when equities crashed in 2008. 2 of the largest up days in the US equity market occurred during that crash. On the other hand the momentum to the downside to quite difficult to break. For today I will be looking at the 1.4200 level as a key line in the sand. A break and hold below that level will likely mean we make a run for the lows. Should that level hold and work up I have two upper manipulation points listed on the chart that I would consider a stop run short from.
