EUR/USD is now battling the 200-day moving average again after having failed at its first attempt to push through last week. The pair have rallied strongly off short-term support around 1.1072, helped in part by a weaker US dollar. The daily chart shows the formation of an upside-down head and shoulders formation which suggests that a break higher may occur in the near-term. The first upside target is the August 6 high at 1.1250. The CCI indictor is now showing the market as overbought but not at the extreme levels seen in mid-October and early-June.
