EURUSD inside bar at resistance

EURUSD inside bar at resistance

The EURUSD formed an inside bar today just underneath resistance at 1.3260. This inside bar did indeed form in the context of the daily uptrend, so we would have to assume that it might break higher and lead to higher prices.

However, a look at the weekly chart will show just how significant the resistance is near 1.3260. Thus, today’s inside bar setup could lead to lower prices given where it is located. This would be a counter-trend setup and therefore is not recommended to inexperienced traders. Inside bars do occur relatively frequently at major market swing points.
