Selling the Retrace Up in EUR/USD at the 20 SMA
Selling the Retrace, EUR/USD turned bearish at the beginning of the summer, but the trend was slow. Now, the trend has accelerated and this pair is breaking all levels one after another. We have opened some short-term and long-term signals in this pair recently, which have closed in profit as the decline picks up pace.
Although, in the last few sessions we have seen a retrace higher, which I think is a good opportunity to sell this pair, so we opened a EUR/USD and a EUR/GBP sell signal just a while ago. The US data continues to come in strong and the jump in the Philly FED manufacturing index today showed just that. It also seems like buyers are getting exhausted, so we’re short on the Euro.
