EUR/USD up 0.19%. Oil prices continue to rise.

EUR/USD slightly increased during Asian session today. As of 3:00 AM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1334, which is 0.19% higher than the previous close.

Scotiabank analysts anticipate a growing pressure on Euro. “The 1.14/1.15 range has been the top for the EUR over the past year and Friday’s close was a poor one for the EUR on the week, suggesting an important top/reversal had formed on the longer-term charts. We see strong resistance at 1.1450/60 now. Weakness below 1.1245/50 this week should add to pressure on the EUR.” written in the report.
