Thursday ended with the EUR/USD being high above of local resistance of 1.10. What's the target now?
EUR supported by the European Commission
The economic situation in the Eurozone is as bad as the ECB’s worst forecasts as reported by the bank’s president Christine Lagarde today. Nevertheless, the EUR is willing to overlook this news and pay more attention to the stimulus extension plans as the European Commission informs. The currency took that as a strong sign that hopes for a better recovery may be fulfilled and rallied against the USD and the GBP. That, however, may be just a temporary rise which will change no larger trend unless there is more fundamentally positive input. Watch for the resistance levels to be crossed or reverse the upswing and adjust your positions accordingly.
