I mentioned yesterday that the bias was shifting to look a little bullish and we did in fact have a move up.
We are still a fairly long way from any important support or resistance levels and therefore I am prepared to take touch trades at either the resistance above us at 1.3949 or the support below us at 1.3751. Both of them look like they have some potential.
In the meantime we are quite likely to chop around, although the bias still looks bullish following yesterday’s bullish engulfing candle.
One cautionary note about the bullishness comes from the fact that we have still not filled the weekend gap, which is a bearish sign. As tomorrow and Monday are public holidays in both the USA and the UK, if this does not happen today it could be a bearish sign.
I do not expect that either 1.3751 or 1.3949 will be reached before next Tuesday.
There are no high-impact news releases due today concerning the EUR. At 1:30pm London time there is a release of US Unemployment Claims data, followed by the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index at 3pm. Therefore it is likely to be fairly quiet for this pair before the New York open.
