Shaun Osborne Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank reported their bullish outlook for EUR/USD today. “However the sustained break above weekly trend resistance (off the mid 2015 high) is a positive and while spot has slipped overnight, losses are contained to the low 1.12 area, the scene of yesterday’s break higher above 1.1235” said Osborne. As per him the resistance level is 1.13 and support stands at 1.12, and the rate will break either side of that range.
