EUR-USD: May Be Forming Short-Term Bottom

The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.

NEW YORK ( -- Having halted its declines this past week, the euro-dollar currency pair may have signaled that a temporary bottom may be forming.

If this is confirmed, the currency pair could mount a further upside offensive toward 1.3483.

A breach would pave the way for EUR-USD to move further higher toward its Dec. 2, 2011 high at 1.3547.

A violation of that level will leave the euro-dollar currency pair to target its weekly 200-day exponential moving average at 1.3642.

Conversely, the risk to this analysis will be a return to the 1.3003 level traded this past week, followed by 1.2975.

If a break is seen at the latter level, it will push the pair still lower, toward 1.2879, its Jan. 23 low.

Further down, support lies at the 1.2620 level.
