EUR/USD In Strong Uptrend After Last Week’s Breakout
EUR/USD has been in a strong uptrend after breaking out from a base last week. The prices also broke an important down trendline in a furious up movement, on high volume and wide range up bars. It’s now in a critical area that will be characterized by a high volatility.
In areas of previous resistances, this volatility and volume spikes are normal, and can be somewhat tricky to understand, but using VSA and Reversals this job is simplified as they’ll show the most important bars. We should first look at the background: it was strong during these movements, and so we should look for up reversals. In the hourly chart, the first one (zone 1) appeared at the same time as major supply, which is something to avoid. The other two (zone 2) were in an area of previous demand, and were soon confirmed by another strong VSA signal. Down reversals on the other hand, signaled less significant movements that lasted for a shorter amount of time.

On to the current action (zone 3), Reversals showed a down Reversal, which marked almost the absolute high of this correction. Apart from that, after these such high volumes, I’d expect prices to continue further with small or no retracement. If they don’t keep advancing, it means much of that volume was supply hitting the market. The market has to show it’s not being conditioned by the supply anymore, with low volume bars or a successful bullish test, above the previous resistance.
