EUR/USD Analysis

Yesterday I wrote that I had a bullish bias, that the price seemed likely to move up again, and that technical levels were likely to be respected. I’ve had to adjust the resistance to 1.2390, but all of this looks to have been true over the past 24 hours. Although there is a long-term bullish trend and the price has been moving up, the Euro has been considerably less bullish than the British Pound, suggesting that its not truly ideal to be trading long here, although it is certainly better than being short.

The price is now again testing the resistance at 1.2390. It is too close to use as a level now, and it is looking more likely that this level will break rather than hold, so I have a weak bullish bias today. If the level does hold, it is likely to signify a deeper bearish pull-back.

EURUSD
