EUR/USD volatility set to expand as breakout unfolds

The other day I discussed the pent-up pressure in long-term Euro volatility and how coupled with short-term volatility conditions it creates an explosive situation. Running with yesterday’s breakout into the mid-11500s we should see EUR/USD continue to make good on higher prices in the near-term and maybe longer.

Looking to resistance levels, the 200-day is rolling down to around 11636 at this time, but with it not having any confluence with major price levels it’s not viewed as ultra-significant. The next major area of price resistance doesn’t arrive until the 11800/50 area, leaving a solid 250/300 points from current levels.

This may indeed turn to be a false breakout, but we’ll take what is in front of us and run with a bullish trading bias as long as we don’t see a breakdown back inside the range. If price trades back to 11450, then more choppiness or a full reversal and gathering of momentum may take shape to the downside as the market is caught leaning the wrong way. An outcome we’ll discuss later should it become relevant.

Struggling right now? It happens to the best. Check out these four core ideas to help boost your Confidence as a Trader.
