Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) returns to top end of range
Yesterday’s rally saw EUR/USD head towards the $1.15 level once again, but this is still providing resistance, as it has since early November.
A close above $1.15 would spark significant upside, targeting $1.1554 and then $1.1623. If the current range holds then the first target is the $1.13 zone of support that has held over the past eight weeks.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 1.16.
The projected lower bound is: 1.13.
The projected closing price is: 1.14.
