Red's Mid Week Forex EUR-USD Trade Idea

EUR-USD - 1.2841

Old Strategy: Stand Aside

Most recent candlesticks  pattern : N/A

Trend : Near term down

Tenkan-Sen level :1.2790 Kijun-Sen level :1.2779 Ichimoku cloud top  :1.2747 Ichimoku cloud bottom :1.2737

New strategy :  Buy at 1.2750, Target: 1.2870,  Stop: 1.2715

The single currency rose  again after intra-day brief retreat to  1.2734 Wednesday, suggesting near term rise from last week's low of 1.2624 is  still in progress, and may bring retracement of recent decline to previous  resistance at 1.2879, but, near term overbought condition should limit  upside to 1.2900/05, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 1.3077 to 1.2624,  and likely 1.2940-50, 1.236 times projection of 1.2624-1.2810 measuring  from 1.2712, will hold from here, bring retreat again later.

This being the POV, I am looking to buy Euro on pullback as the  Ichimoku cloud, now at 1.2737-47, should limit downside. Only a move below the  minor support at 1.2712 will abort, and signal Top is formed and risk weakness  to 1.2690 but I believe that 1.2650 would limit the Southside and  support at 1.2624 should continue to hold.
