After the EUR/USD plunged below 1.2000, it seems to be attempting a comeback. Will it succeed? The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that the pair faces a dense cluster of resistance lines on the way up. The 1.2010 level is the confluence of the Bolinger Band 15 minute Middle, the BB one-hour Middle, the Simple Moving Average-5-1hv, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day, and more.
