The dollar is standing at the back foot in European trading on Monday following Friday’s inverted hammer (bearish signal) which was formed after four-day advance stalled on probe above 110 barrier.
Rising risk of pullback is verified by bull-trap above 110 mark on daily chart and strong weekly gains that prompted profit-taking.
Daily technical studies show stochastic reversing from overbought territory and 14-d momentum turned to sideways mode, supporting the notion
Today’s bearish close would generate initial bearish signal which would look for confirmation on close below double-Fibo support at 109.57/55 (Fibo 38.2% of 108.55/110.19 upleg / 23.6% of 107.47/110.19).
Only bounce and close above 110 would neutralize risk of pullback and bring larger bulls to play.
