“EUR/USD is through the seven month resistance line at 1.1308 and is approaching the February high at 1.1377, we look for the market to now struggle. We note the 13 count on the 240 minute chart and if not already done so we would tighten stops on longs/exit. Above here lie the September and October highs at 1.1460/95” said Karen Jones from Commerzbank.
