This setup is attached to the previous long EUR/USD Analyst Pick from last week. I had hedged around the Dollar ahead of last week’s Central Bank speeches, and EUR/USD remains bullish with the prospect of further topside continuation. With half of the position exited out and one target remaining at 1.1500, the door is opened for re-entry.
We looked at this setup earlier this morning as USD,DXY is working with short-term resistance. Current support in EUR/USD is showing at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the most recent bullish move, and just below at the 50% retracement, we have confluence as this lines up with the prior resistance around 1.1285. Stops will be set below the 61.8% retracement in the event that a test of the 50% level is in the cards as we’re nearing two rather pivotal pieces of US data.
Stops below 1.1230
Break-even stop move at 114.40
First target: 1.1480
Target 2: 1.1615
