EUR/USD saw an overnight selloff after a buy climax. Traders are deciding if was just a brief pullback in the bull trend, or if it signals the start of a trend reversal down. Today’s close will help traders decide. The single currency was turning down from a micro double top and wedge rally, to a double top with the Feb. 25 high.

If EUR/USD closes today near its low, then the selloff will probably reach the May 5 low, which was the bottom of last week’s buy climax, as well as the bottom of a 4-week trading range.

Because of last week’s strong rally, a close today in the middle range or above will probably provide bulls with at least one more leg up to Feb. 25.

  • Sold off overnight, but big reversal up in past 10 minutes. Now, in middle of day’s range.
  • Sell climax and reversal up were strong enough for this to be low for rest of day.
  • Bears need today to reverse back down and close near low of day, but currently have only 40% chance.
  • Bulls want today to close in the middle of the range, or near the high of the day. That will increase the chance of today being just a pullback in the 6-week rally.
  • At the moment, the bulls are winning and day traders are buying aggressively.
  • Bulls want today to close here or higher, but Big Down, Big Up creates Big Confusion. That typically leads to a trading range. Therefore, day traders will expect the bull trend reversal to either weaken into a bull channel or evolve into a trading range.
  • If there is a 20-pip pullback, day traders will again sell, but probably only for scalps.
  • Today will probably be sideways or up for the rest of the day.
