EURUSD Heading Back to Fibonacci Resistance

The recent rebound in EURUSD continues to look weak and may struggle to break back above resistance at 1.14480, the 50% retracement of the January 2017 – February 2018 rally. 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.
