Recent price action in EUR/USD raises the risk for a larger recovery as the exchange rate breaks out of a near-term holding pattern, with euro-dollar at risk of extending the advance from earlier this month as it carves a fresh series of higher highs & lows.

The reaction to the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report brings the topside targets back on the radar as both price and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) snap the downward trend from earlier this year, and EUR/USD may exhibit a more bullish behavior over the near-term as the retail crowd appears to going against the recent advance in the exchange rate.

The recent shift in retail positioning suggests the crowd is looking for range-bound conditions as euro-dollar approaches the June-high (1.1852), but the fact traders are now net-short EUR/USDraises the risk for a larger rebound in the exchange rate as a bullish sequence takes shape.

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Please add a description for the image.

EUR/USD snaps the wedge/triangle formation following the failed attempts to break/close below the 1.1510 (38.2% expansion) region, with the June-high (1.1852) on the radar as the pair carves a fresh series of higher highs & lows. Need a close above the 1.1810 (61.8% retracement) region to favor a larger recovery, with the next area of interest coming in around 1.1960 (38.2% retracement) to 1.1970 (23.6% expansion).
