Thanks to a poor US retail sales report and ongoing Brexit-related optimism, the EUR/USD exchange rate continues to squeeze higher. A few moments ago, it broke above last week’s high at 1.1060ish. With the Dollar Index also struggling, and given the narrowing of the Germany-US yields, the path of least resistance continues to remain to the upside for this pair. The bulls will be eyeing the top of the rising channel or the Fibonacci retracement levels shown on the chart below as possible target. Key support comes in at 1.1045. For as long as this level holds, the bulls should remain happy. However, a break back below this level, or ideally a closing break sub 1.10, would probably invalidate the bullish argument.

Risk Warning Notice Foreign Exchange and CFD trading are high risk and not suitable for everyone. You should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite before making a decision to trade with us. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of the markets that you are trading. Margin and leverage To open a leveraged CFD or forex trade you will need to deposit money with us as margin. Margin is typically a relatively small proportion of the overall contract value. For example a contract trading on leverage of 100:1 will require margin of just 1% of the contract value. This means that a small price movement in the underlying will result in large movement in the value of your trade – this can work in your favour, or result in substantial losses. Your may lose your initial deposit and be required to deposit additional margin in order to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement your position will be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.
