Commerzbank analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD yesterday. “EUR/USD has reached initial resistance at 1.1415/20, the 61.8% retracement and channel mid point – between here and resistance at 1.1465/95 (early April 2016 high and the October 2015 high) we should see the rally grind to a halt. Provided it does so we should see a retest of the critical 1.1102/1.1058 support. This guards major support at 1.1102/1.1058 is the location of the 200 day ma, the 55 week ma, the December high, the March 16 low and the short term uptrend” written in the report.
