Technical update EUR/USD
In regards to technical analysis, the upward trend line visible since April 2, to confirm the positive bias, this line stopped the fall of the last night.
The back above 1.13, this morning is another signal encouraging, but new highs above the resistance of 1.1325-30 will be quickly necessary to maintain the positive momentum.
A break below the upward trend line currently located at 1.1280, and, a fortiori, under the moving average 200 hours to 1.1270 would begin to question the upward bias, and to attract the market’s attention on the next support at 1.1250, 1.12 and 1.1175, the lowest annual 2019.
