EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the bearish trend line (shown unchanged in the chart below) had to be broken to the upside to confirm real bullishness. We did have a bullish day in this pair yesterday, which flipped resistance to support at 1.2343 and then again at around 1.2366, although the 1.2343 level looks more reliable. However after moving up very quickly, the price stalled at the bearish trend line as expected, in an area that was above 1.2400 but fairly confluent with a similar recent swing high.

The price should now either manage to really break above the trend line and proceed to 1.2500, or turn around at the next test of the trend line and fall. Alternatively, we may fall back to 1.2343 first, and pick up steam there for another charge at the trend line, which might make a successful break out more likely.
