Weekly Currency Market Price Action Forecast for Aug. 18-22

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- EURUSD -- Euro/dollar consolidates just above support, looking for sell signal

Last week, the EURUSD consolidated just above 1.3330 support and ended the week basically unchanged.

The trend is still down overall, but the market has showed some failure to follow through to the downside recently. Thus, if price retraces higher this week, we will watch for a price action selling opportunity from resistance near 1.3500.
