The recent French presidential elections have left a ‘gap’ in the EURUSD chart that needs to be filled if the single-currency is to push higher against the greenback. The daily chart shows a gap between 1.08207 and 1.07774, made on the day that Emmanuel Macron went through to the second round of the presidential elections – which he subsequently won.

And looking at the 20-, 50- 100-day moving averages, the technical set-up for EUR is still pointing to the downside. With the pair still trading below the 20-day ma, currently at 1.09286 on the one–hour chart, the upside currently remains capped.
Staying with the one-hour chart, a doji appears with a high of 1.10241, a potential reversal signal for the single-currency.
