As hoped, EUR/USD rallied a bit higher to the 38% Fibonacci retracement level, and after hanging out just a bit above 1.56, the pair dropped as the US Dollar rallied on comments from Fed Chairman Bernanke.
Our trade hit full profit target.
1st Half: +70 pips
2nd Half: +140 pips
Total: +1.5% gain

We have a nice chart setup on EUR/USD which may give us an opportunity for a short term trade.
It looks like pair is in range mode after the US Dollar made a strong move against the Euro, moving from a high of just above 1.58 to a low just above 1.5450. Without any major news for both the Greenback or Euro tomorrow, I feel that if the market makes its way back up to 1.5600, we may see sellers waiting to hold that 38% Fibonacci retracement area down. Stochastics are just above neutral, so if there is further retracement to go, it hasn’t run out of steam yet.
Short EUR/USD at 1.5600, stop at 1.5670, pt1 at 1.5530, pt2 at 1.5460
