Euro Going To 1.20 By 4th Quarter (FX Concepts John Taylor), EUR/USD Technicals (Chart)

| |
John Taylor of FX Concepts, the biggest currency hedge fund in the world, thinks the trillion dollar European bailout will just delay the fall to 1.20 on EUR/USD.  He thinks it will hit 1.20 in the 4th quarter and potentially lower.  Taylor is a Dollar bull favoring US over European economic growth and I'm sure forward looking US/EU interest rate differentials are part of the equation.  The chart does not look healthy.

It's interesting that the initial EUR/USD spike above 1.3 on the bailout news was sold hard to 1.27.  It could revisit the 1.25196 low from last week and double bottom support from 2008/early 2009 at 1.24/1.25.  If these levels get taken out, it is game over imho.  The Euro will hit 1.17-1.20, making FX Concepts billions on its 100x leveraged EUR/USD short position.  I bet the RSI (relative strength index) breaks below 30 before a confirmed bottom.
