Red's Forex Trade Idea: EUR-USD pair, Stand aside

Candlesticks and Ichimoku Intra-day read

EUR-USD - 1.3747

Most recent candlesticks pattern : N/A

Trend : Near term up

Tenkan-Sen level :1.3756
Kijun-Sen level :1.3747
Ichimoku cloud top :1.3791
Ichimoku cloud bottom :1.3763

New strategy : Stand aside

Position: - none
Target: - none
Stop:- none

Yesterday's fall to 1.3682, lack of follow through selling, and the rebound after holding above indicated support at 1.3656 add credibility to my view that further choppy consolidation will be seen, and yet another bounce to the Ichimoku cloud top, now at 1.3791 cannot be ruled out.

But, a move above yesterday's high at 1.3839 is needed to signal another leg of corrective rebound is underway for test of resistance at 1.3870, Friday's high, which is likely to hold on the 1st test.

On the Downside: a break of the support at 1.3682 extends weakness to previous support at 1.3656, but a break there is needed to confirm that the correction from last week's low of 1.3608 has ended, and bring resumption of early decline from 1.4248 Top for a retest of 1.3608, a break below there extends the weakness towards 1.3565-66, previous support and 61.8% Fibo retracement of 1.3145-1.4248.

As near term outlook is mixed, I say stand aside for now, be patient.
