Euro/Us$ - is a head and shoulders forming?

Date: 5th October,2017 by Timothy Straiton

The current level is 1.1773, trading above the rising 200 day moving average of 1.1147, but below the 50 day moving average of 1.1845 and also below the monthly pivot level of 1.1873.
It could well be that this market is in the process of building the right shoulder of a classical head and shoulders formation. In such a phase, prices could re-visit the 1.19 area. Thereafter, focus will be on 1.1660 which is the base of the H&S formation and also the Fibonacci 23.6% retracement from the top of the 1.2092 - 1.0339 range, a clear break of which would generate downward momentum toward the 1.1420 level. Only a break above 1.2100 would negate this assumption and pave the way for more upside fantasy.
