Thursday Charts That Matter 8/9/12

Good morning. Risk pairs keep rising while the dollar is losing ground across the board. EUR holds onto gains at $1.2370 at time of writing after bouncing off support around 1.2320.

EURUSD

Intraday sentiment remains slightly bullish while EUR holds above 1.2320 but is losing strength on daily charts, so a daily close above $1.2400 is needed to maintain positive momentum.

Market sentiment: intraday – slightly bullish, short-term – slightly bullish

Potential trade strategy: to buy dips at 1.2300/20, target above 1.24. Another setup (short-term) is to buy on break above 1.2400, target above 1.26
