EUR/USD Hits First Target- Key Resistance Stands at 1.1230

EUR/USD Hits First Target- Key Resistance Stands at 1.1230

Michael Boutros,
  • EURUSD hits initial targets- Constructive above Friday’s low
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels


Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: Euro has taken out our initial topside target noted earlier this week at 1.1170. This level is defined by the 50% retracement of the Brexit decline and converges on former slope support heading into the July open. Likely to see some pullback here, but the trade remains constructive near-term while above today’s low at 1.1072 with a breach higher targeting more significant resistance at 1.1227/30 where the key 61.8% retracement converges on the 100-day moving average – note that this is an area of interest for possible exhaustion / short-entries.
