Let’s get straight to the point. This problem is the false breakout that happened last week. It gave a false hope for a reversal but now, many fooled buyers have to abandon their long positions and this may cause havoc on the most popular instrument on the Forex market.

EURUSD Daily 12:37 GMT

Last week, EURUSD buyers managed to break two crucial resistances; a horizontal one at the 1.1380 level (yellow) and a dynamic one – blue mid-term down trendline connecting the latest crucial lower highs. That gave us a buy signal, which we now know was fake. This gives us a false breakout pattern (red), which in theory promotes a strong movement in the opposite direction – down.

The price is currently defending the last important support – a dynamic short-term uptrend line but I can’t guarantee that this one will hold. Actually, chances for that are pretty slim and the possibility of a breakout is increasing. A breakout of the black line, should confirm the dominance of the sellers and bring us a long-term sell signal. The odds for that are quite significant.
