6/15/2009 € EUR/USD € Price action on EUR/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has formed a rough head & shoulders pattern that hints at a significantly bearish reversal potential if price is able to continue its break below the 1.3800 region. The H&S pattern is rough because the right shoulder is significantly higher than the left shoulder, while the neckline is relatively flat. In any event, a strong breakdown below the neckline with follow-through should target further support in the 1.3550 price region. In the event that the head & shoulders pattern fails to complete with a strong neckline breakdown, upside resistance resides around the 1.4050 region.
