Under different circumstances, a EURUSD break above 1.2825 would have represented a perfect short-term trade setup. Had the technical breakout come on news of a definitive resolution of Greece's funding troubles, it would have offered the necessary mix of technical catalyst and fundamental follow through to run for a few hundred pips. However, our actual conditions reflect a move higher due to a drop in speculative participation.

Furthermore, we discuss the trading approach and setups that are best suited for the market conditions we have ahead.
