Previous: EUR/USD - Bullish Continuation Versus Head and Shoulder Scenarios (2/19)




The latest in the Eurozone debt crisis saga is a Greek bailout deal reached. The market had a buy the rumor sell the news type of action after initially rallying after the decision, but failing to climb above 1.33 over the 2/21 Aian-European session. The market found support at 1.32 entering the US session, and is climbing back up. The 1H chart shows that the market was still establishing higher lows and highs, and the RSI was held above 40, signs of bullish momentum (especially if RSI can push back above 60). Also the market stayed above the 200 hour simple moving average, also suggesting the market is still bullish.

A re-test of 1.3320 is in sight. Failure to break it keeps a medium term double top scenario alive especially if the market falls below 1.32 again, but a break above suggests continuation of the medium term bullish mode toward the 1.35 and 1.36 handles.
