While strong RSI conditions, also not near the 70 overbought level, favor the bulls to aim for the confluence of 100-bar SMA and a short-term descending resistance line around 1.1758/60.

Though, any further upside past-1.1760 will need to be backed by market optimism and a sustained clearance of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of October 21 to November 02 downside, at 1.1782, to aim for the 1.1800 threshold.

During the EUR/USD buyers’ dominance beyond the 1.1800 round-figure, the October 23 high of 1.1864 and the previous month’s peak surrounding 1.1880 will be in the spotlight.

On the flip side, a horizontal area around 1.1700-1695 restricts the pair’s short-term declines ahead of recalling the early-month top near 1.1655 on the chart.
