EUR/USD’s rally resumed last week and powered through 1.1298 resistance to as high as 1.1444. With a temporary top in place, initial bias is neutral this week for consolidation. But downside of retreat should be contained by 1.1291 support to bring another rise. Break of 1.1444 will extend the rally from 1.0339 low to 1.1615 resistance next.
In the bigger picture, the firm break of 1.1298 resistance further affirm medium term reversal. That is an important bottom was formed at 1.0339 on bullish convergence condition in weekly MACD. Further rise would be seen to 55 month EMA (now at 1.1776). Sustained break there will pave the way to 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 (2008 high) to 1.0339 (2017 low) at 1.2516 next. This will now remain the favored case as long as 1.1118 support holds.
In the long term picture, 1.0339 is now seen as an important bottom as the down trend from 1.6039 (2008 high) could have completed. It’s still early to decide whether price action form 1.0339 is developing into a corrective or impulsive move. But in either case, further rally would be seen to 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 to 1.0339 at 1.2516
