EUR/USD Technical Analysis
After forming a strong support above 1.0900, the Euro started a strong increase against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair broke many hurdles near 1.1100 to move into a positive zone.
There was a close above the 1.1120 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair recently tested the 1.1200 zone and traded as high as 1.1201 on FXOpen. The current price action is positive and dips remain supported near 1.1180.
The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the 1.1115 low to 1.1201 high is also near the 1.1180 level to act as a support. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near 1.1140 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
The trend line is close to the 1.1150 pivot level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the 1.1115 low to 1.1201 high could also provide support near the 1.1150 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.
If the pair fails to stay above 1.1150 and 1.1140, it could revisit the 1.1100 support zone. On the upside, the pair is likely to continue higher above the 1.1200 resistance zone.
A successful close above the 1.1200 resistance could lift the pair towards the 1.1240 and 1.1250 levels. Any further gains may perhaps call for a test of the 1.1320 level in the near term.
