Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) looking towards the 1.1750 level
The Euro rallied significantly during the trading session on Friday, breaking above the shooting star that formed on Wednesday which of course is a very bullish sign. At this point, the market may continue to go higher, but there’s obviously a lot of resistance just above.
If we do break to the upside, I think that the market will probably go looking towards the 1.1750 level, followed by the 1.18 level. Pullback should find support and the 1.15 handle, if we can even get down there. The US dollar sold off quite drastically over the course of the week, it looks like people are starting to worry less about the Turkish situation spreading into contagion of European banks, at least for the time being. Because of this, I think that we may see a bit of a continuation of the recovery.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 1.18.
The projected lower bound is: 1.15.
The projected closing price is: 1.17.
