Key Quotes

EUR/USD is consolidating tightly sideways just below resistance at 1.1285 and the 200 day ma at 1.1291. The consolidation is viewed in a positive light, intraday Elliott wave counts remain positive, however lack of upside progress is worrying and it is possible that we will see a minor sell off first. Key resistance is 1.1354/71, the 2018-2019 down channel and the 55 week ma. A weekly close above this latter level is needed for us to adopt an outright bullish stance”.
