EUR/USD Rate Rises After First Round of Voting in France

According to Reuters, exit polls show that Marine Le Pen’s far-right party, the National Rally (RN), won the first round of parliamentary elections in France on Sunday.

The financial market reacted to this with a rise in the euro’s exchange rate against other currencies.

Specifically, the EUR/USD rate jumped to its highest level since June 13.

The EUR/USD chart shows that:

→ At the end of June, the price formed a consolidation pattern (shown as an orange triangle);

→ But today’s bullish gap (shown in green) broke through it.

According to the principles of technical analysis, if the height of the consolidation pattern is measured through the A-B extremes, the rise could reach the level of 1.08400 (the height of the pattern, projected from the breakout level).

However, for this to happen, bulls need to overcome the resistance zone of 1.080-1.078.

Note that at the Monday morning high, the EUR/USD price sharply reversed downwards (indicated by an arrow). This indicates the activity of supply forces, so traders should not rule out a scenario where the price retraces to the breakout level, into the zone of the bullish gap.
