  • EUR/USD is hovering near 4.5-month highs above 1.12.
  • A close above November’s high would imply bullish breakout on the monthly chart.  

EUR/USD is currently trading at 1.1212, representing a 1.79% gain on a month-to-date basis, having hit a 4.5-month high of 1.1221 on Monday.  

The pair created a bearish inside month candle in November. That pattern occurs when the period begins with optimism but ends on a negative note and the trading range falls within the preceding period’s high and low.  

The inside month candle indicates indecision or consolidation in a narrowing price range. Hence, a break above the candle’s high is considered a bullish signal.  

So, a bullish reversal on the monthly chart would be confirmed if the pair closes Tuesday above November’s high of 1.1176. That will likely yield a rally to levels above 1.14.

The short-term outlook would turn bearish if and when the pair drops below the Dec. 20 low of 1.1066, invalidating the bullish higher lows setup.
