EUR/USD is still challenging the upper boundary of the trading range. Price is holding above 1.14 and this is a positive sign. Price reached 1.15 earlier today but because it is holiday season and trading is thin, we should be cautious before calling this a break out. Price has moved above the red trend line resistance and this is another positive sign. A back test at 1.14 and a bounce would also be a positive sign. Bears on the other hand want to see price back below the red trend line and move below 1.14. Short-term support is at 1.1430. Next support is at 1.1420 and next at 1.1340. The Daily bullish RSI divergence as we noted in previous posts suggests more upside for this pair. 1.17 area is our first target.
