Central banks took center stage this week, but both leveling down

The common currency had a good week, or better said, the dollar had a terrible one. The EUR/USD pair aims to finish it with gains, having reached a fresh 3-month high of 1.1569, although still unable to clear a key resistance, the 23.6% retracement of its 2018 decline, as the pair has spent the last three days of the week battling with it.

Forthcoming weakness in the US dollar lead the Sterling to a climb back above the 1.29 handle. Today it is tentatively unwinding its rally ahead of Brexit related news.

The first challenge today will be the 1.2800 handle, just below the weekly pivot point, daily S1, the 100-hour SMA, and yesterday's low, converging together.

In between, 1.2760 indicator cluster may come into play.
