EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Remains capped below August swing highs ahead of US retail sales

   •  The pair this week witnessed multiple bullish breakouts through a short-term descending trend-line and a two-week-old trading range.

   •  A subsequent move beyond 100-day SMA, for the first time since late-April, and positive technical indicators reinforced the bullish set-up.

   •  Despite the positive momentum, the pair remained capped below the August swing high level of 1.1734 in absence of any fresh catalyst.

   •  The release of the US monthly retail sales data will now be looked upon for some fresh impetus and some meaningful trading opportunities.
