What can we expect from EURUSD today?
EURUSD on Wednesday rose 0.08% to 1.05827. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising.
Updated daily direction for EURUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 1.05384 (S1).
Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.05833 or trades above daily pivot 1.05608. Break above could target R1 at 1.06052. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.05384 (S1) and daily low of 1.05165 as support levels. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 1.05833 may suggest continuation after recent positive movement.
For the week to-date, take note that EURUSD is mixed as compared to the prior week.
