The end of last week saw a bullish move up with a breakout from the bearish channel that we had been established in for some time. We are also within a longer-term uptrend.
The daily candles were however quite weak on the upside, which suggests that we are not going to have much further to move up before we will pull back down some way.
A likely candidate as a good resistance level is 1.3738. This level was more or less the January high and a sharp peak. It is also very confluent with today’s R2 GMT daily pivot point.
I agree with Christopher Lewis’s assessment that this pair simply has no real clear directional impetus at the moment.
There is no important news due today for the EUR or the USD. As it is also a public holiday in the USA, it is likely to be a very quiet trading day unless there is dramatic and unexpected news.
