EUR/USD’s 15-minute chart shows a pennant breakout. Pennants are continuation patterns, which accelerate the preceding bullish move.  

The pennant breakout on the 15-minute chart indicates resumption of the rally from Tuesday’s low near 1.0880 and has created room for at least a 60-pip move to the higher side. As of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.0940.  

Supporting the bullish case is the above-50 reading on the hourly chart relative strength index.  

The bullish case would weaken if the spot falls below 1.0928.
