The Patient EUR/USD Trade – BofAML

Research Team at BofAML, sees the possibility of EUR/USD declining in the near term due to a head and shoulders top pattern and seasonal headwinds.

Key Quotes

“Such a decline, in our view, would be viewed as an opportunity to go long in anticipation of a resumption of the uptrend that began when price closed at a 15 month closing high ending March 2015. We like buying EUR/USD on a decline into the green shaded area at about 1.1118. We also point out that the 12 month moving average is at 1.1024 and that aligns with the daily 100% Fibonacci top target. A decline to his level cannot be ruled out. We recommend a stop with a close below 1.10. Initial targets include 1.1465 and 1.1525.

The short term head and shoulders top pattern was confirmed on Friday when price closed below the neckline at 1.1270. Today price is testing the neckline as resistance which is a common occurrence of price pattern formations. If price were to rally and close above 1.1410 it would void the pattern.”
