With trend-lines starting in the current vicinity up to around 11380, EURUSD is reaching a point in time where if it is to turn lower it will do so very soon. A solid turnabout day or two will help with timing, similar to how things played out the past few times we saw bounces turn into selling in January and February.
If a strong downturn develops, the high of the move can be used as a backstop for shorts. Targets on the downside are conservative, with the area just below 11200 arriving first as support, followed by the low-11100s where several lines intersect to create solid confluence of support.
Tactically, it makes sense to continue booking most of one’s profits after conservative targets are met, with maybe a small piece of the position held in the event momentum develops during one of these price swings.
