EUR/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the Euro gained bullish momentum above the 1.1350 resistance against the US Dollar. EUR/USD traded towards 1.1450 and it is currently showing signs of more upsides.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair settled nicely above the 1.1370 resistance level, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).

It traded as high as 1.1452 before correcting lower. There was a drop below the 1.1400 level. However, the 1.1370 support zone acted as a strong support along with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.1254 low to 1.1452 high.

There is also a significant bullish trend line forming with support near 1.1310 on the same chart. The trend line is close to the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

Therefore, dips in EUR/USD could find support near 1.1370 or 1.1310. Any further losses may perhaps push the pair into a bearish zone. Conversely, it may perhaps continue to climb higher above 1.1450 and 1.1465 levels.

The next major resistance is near the 1.1500 level. Looking at GBP/USD, the pair seems to be holding the 1.2500 support level, but it is facing a major hurdle near 1.2600 and 1.2620.
