EUR/USD is now trading at 1.3660, above the previous high of 1.3646 and above resistance at 1.3650, which was a peak before also before September.

The move comes on the background of the weak resolution seen in the US: a last minute deal that sets a date for the next crisis. The initial reaction to the deal was a dip below double support. However, this dip was never confirmed and the result was a very strong bounce, as the chart shows:

The next line of resistance is the 2013 peak of 1.3710. This is a critical line. If broken, 1.3840 and 1.3950 are the next lines.

Looking down, 1.3570 provides support in case this proves to be a false break.
