EUR/USD up 0.21%. Oil prices jumped 3%.

EUR/USD rose during the European session today. As of 1:00 PM EDT the currency pair was trading at 1.1295, which represents 0.21% increase from the previous close.

The analysts at UOB Group provided their outlook on EUR/USD yesterday. “While the break below 1.1230 bodes well for our bearish EUR view, the downward momentum is not as impulsive as we would like and this coupled with the strong support at 1.1145 suggests that EUR may struggle to move below this level. As such, those who are short may like to take partial profit at this level. Stop-loss is adjusted lower to 1.1320 from 1.1395 previously” written in the report.
