EUR/USD: Hesitation |


The has rallied for 4 weeks, but 5 of the past 6 days were doji bars.

This is hesitation, and it is coming at the resistance of the December/February trading range bottom.

Traders are deciding if the rally will continue up to the January high, or reverse down to the November 4 low.

Since the EUR/USD has been sideways for 9 months, it will most likely continue sideways for at least a couple more months.

This 4-week rally is more likely a bull leg in the 9-month trading range, than a resumption of the 2020 bull trend.

Traders should expect a 1- to 2-week pullback to begin within the next couple weeks.

Rally is a Small Pullback Bull Trend, which is strong. It therefore could continue up for another week or so, before the leg down begins.
