EUR/USD Analysis

The market is pretty active, as although we had no major news yesterday and it was a Monday, this pair still managed to move up 100 pips or so, well above its weekly open and against the long-term trend.

We are now approaching a moment of truth as there are three levels of resistance plus a major bearish trend line above us. Each of these can give a good opportunity to go short. The first level of 1.2357 should be treated with special caution. I expect 1.2400 to be more solid.

If 1.2400 and the bearish trend line are both properly broken to the upside, this will be a bullish sign, indicating that a major pull back is probably beginning. My colleague Christopher Lewis sees some signs of possible short-term bullishness.

EURUSD 12914

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today directly concerning either the EUR or the USD. It is likely to be a quiet day for this pair.
