Technical Overview:

In the last 2 days, EUR/USD tumbled more than 300 pips just to recover more than half of the loss, gaining more than 200 from the bottom. This technical behavior may signal one of the two: either the bearish short term momentum was a clear first sign of a medium term trend reversal or it was a psychological selloff, providing a good opportunity to go long. Should it is real – then the current rebound of the pair is…
