The Euro continued to recover against the US Dollar after a brief pause to consolidate, with buyers securing a foothold above the 1.13 figure. Near-term resistance is at 1.1359, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.4501. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.1247 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 1.1178.
Our EURUSD short position from at 1.1148 was stopped out on yesterday’s close above 1.1289. From here, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side in line with our long-term outlookis premature. As such, we will remain flat for now.
