Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Dec 6 pressed EUR/USD below the 50-Day average. However, the price rallied after and remained in current trading zone 1.1050- 1.1220 as some sellers pulled back i.e. exited the market. Since then, the pair has surged eying a test of the high end of the zone.
A close above the high end of the zone opens the door for market’s participants to push towards the vicinity of 1.1286. Further close above this level could mean more bullishness towards 1.1366. Nevertheless, some buyers would exit at the weekly resistance levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in).
That said, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone may repeat the mid-August scenario i.e. buyer’s pullback. In this case, EUR/USD could reverse course towards the low end of the zone.
