Key quotes

“EUR/USD is through tough resistance at 1.1815/33, this was a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, a 12-year resistance line and the September 2018 high. We are surprised that this has not held the initial test. The break above here targets 1.2635/66, the 200-month ma.”

“Initial support lies 1.1663 (cloud support) ahead of the March high at 1.1495. Ideally dips lower will be contained by the two-month uptrend at 1.1430.”
