Candlestick Chart Analysis
Hammer Rejection Candle
The Euro moved upwards against the US Dollar after the rejection candle/ hammer candlestick pattern on the 13th of November. There are important Support/ Resistance levels on the daily EURO US Dollar chart. Market currently trades at the daily confluence resistance level consisting of the 20 SMA and further the monthly S1 and the low of October 1st, which both held the market on the 15th of November at around 1.28 (First test).
During the start of the US session today, market penetrated the 1.28 resistance level (second test) and moved up to the weekly R1. On the 5 min chart we see that market closed at the 1.28 resistance level with a bullish candle at 3:40 p.m. GMT just before the Euro breached this level (Breakout Timing). The following breakout candle at 3:45 p.m. got high bullish momentum because of the stops placed above the 1.28 level. However, there was no follow through or breakout confirmation on the 5 min chart but market retested the 1.28 level and held 1.28 so far. As long as the Euro holds this level we might see a continuation pattern triggered for a true or false breakout with the start of the new daily candle (Bullish daily candle close at daily resistance-Breakout trading). The next resistance level might be the low of October 11th at 1.2826.
The 4 hour chart shows the two rejection candles on the 13th of November which contributed to the daily rejection candle.
[The hourly chart shows the news shakeout/ stop running on the 14th of November. Market cleared the stops above resistance at 1.2755 (low of Sept. 10th) and then EUR/USD reversed and the logical next target was the recent low to clear the stops of the breakout trader at 1.2724. Stop running is an important driving force in Trading.]
