EUR/USD Open 1.3114 Low 1.2983 High 1.3169 Close 1.3125
On Friday Euro/Dollar continued increasing with 180 pips after the Fed. The European currency appreciated from 1.2983 to 1.3169 on Friday, matching the positive money flow sentiment at over 31%, closing the week at 1.3125. This morning the Euro is trading quietly, with movements at the upper end of Friday's range for now.
On the 1 hour chart the upward channel has sharpened its angle, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is intact. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.3169 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow Friday's bottom and first support at 1.2983, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.2870.
