EUR/USD has at long last taken out the 200-day ma and its current May high at 1.1012/19 with gusto, with scope for the 1.1240 December high, Karen Jones, Team Head FICC Technical Analysis Research at Commerzbank, informs.

Key quotes

“The close above the 1.1012 200-day ma should be enough to regenerate upside interest to the 1.1240 December peak and beyond to the 200-week ma at 1.1332. Note that we have a confirmed buy signal on the DMI Index and now look for a move higher.” 

“Dips should find initial support at 1.0927 ahead of the short-term uptrend at 1.0815. Provided this holds, an upside bias remains entrenched.”
