  • EUR/USD is having a small pullback just below the 1.1700 level. The strength of the pullback is rather weak suggesting that bulls will need more in order to break through the level.  
  • In addition, EUR/USD bulls would need to break above the trendline and the 200-period simple moving average if they want to extend the current bullish reversal attempt.  
  • To the downside, the line in the sand for bears is the 1.1640, a break below the level would likely see an acceleration towards 1.1600. On the flip side, a strong breakout above 1.1700 can see a retest of   the 1.1720-1.1730-1.1740 area, with the June 26 high, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement from mid-April-May bear move and the weekly open, which is quite a lot of resistance to go through. A breakout above this area would be considered negative for bears.
