EURUSD Heading Back to Fibonacci Resistance

On the daily chart the pair remain technically weak with only the oversold RSI indicator providing any potential bullish momentum. If resistance is broken the upside looks capped around 1.1554 where the November 2017 swing low joins the 20-day moving average.
