Above here, 1.1473 and the November 7 high at 1.1500 come into play. The pair have also made five higher lows in a row and trade back above both the 20- and 50-day moving average.

ECB President Mario Draghi may also warn that inflation pressures in the single-bloc are weakening while growth remains elusive, and the central bank may trim their growth and inflation forecasts.
