EURUSD consolidates the biggest daily gains in nearly three months around a fortnight top during Tuesday. In doing so, the major currency pair retreats from a weekly ascending trend channel’s resistance line amid an overbought RSI. However, the quote remains beyond the 200-SMA and previous resistance line from late March, respectively around 1.0650 and the 1.0560. Adding strength to the 1.0560 support is the lower line of the aforementioned channel. It’s worth noting that the 100-SMA level of 1.0525 and April’s low of 1.0470 also challenge the pair’s weakness past 1.0560.
On the flip side, a fresh run-up will aim for another battle with the stated channel’s resistance line, near 1.0710 at the latest. Also acting as the key upside hurdle is the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the March-May downside, close to 1.0765. In a case where EURUSD rises past 1.0765, the bulls can aim for late April’s swing high surrounding 1.0935.
Overall, EURUSD bears need to stay cautious before taking any major positions as the quote is yet to defy the previous breakouts.
