Weekly Trend direction: Bullish
Weekly trend reversal level: 1.3550
Strategy: Whilst above the weekly trend reversal level, buy dips to support levels after an entry signal.
Medium term: The euro has broken above the large flag formation which has dominated the technical picture in 2006. Now, whilst above 1.2900 (1.2800 max), the euro remains in an uptrend which is heading back towards 1.3800, and possibly higher still, towards 1.4100.
Today's trade suggestion: Powering up to 1.3800 and just 60 pips shy of the all-time high at 1.3860, the euro 'should' have another bash at taking 1.3900 this week. If we do manage this, the next stop is probably 1.4100. Remain bullish and look to buy dips after a clear G7 entry signal, but keep stops tight and be nimble with profit-taking. As we approach these extreme levels, volatile swings in both directions are possible and even likely. 1.3550 and 1.3350 are now very key support areas and whilst above here, expect continued upside probing. Below 1.3550 means a medium term top might just be in place and momentum should remain bearish for some time.
Key G7 Support levels: 1.3550
Counter-trend opportunities: Sell 1.3860
