Chart of the Day: EURUSD set for breakdown?

Longer-term patterns in the EURUSD are strongly supportive of a bearish trade, perhaps targeting parity or lower. This is an aggressive entry, but it is often possible to enter after a very small consolidation near recent lows. In this case, stops could be established somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.26 after entering on a close below yesterday’s low. (Note the small bar is a partial session.)
