EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that as the key levels were all holding up and the action seemed slightly more bearish now, so a test of 1.1325 was more likely. We really needed to see what would happen at 1.1325 or 1.1381 to have a better idea of what will happen next, but I felt that 1.1325 would hold. This was a good call as the level was not even touched, but little happened until the strong move in the British Pound dragged the Euro upwards. The price broke up but was held by the resistance near 1.1400 and has now pulled back. The Pound is quite likely to rise again so the Euro may get some buoyancy from that yet is quite likely to struggle to break above 1.1400 again.

EURUSD

There is nothing of high importance due today concerning the EUR. Regarding the USD, the Chair of the Federal Reserve will be testifying before the House of Congress on its Monetary Policy Report at 3pm London time.
