EUR/USD up 0.37%. Oil prices rose 3%.

EUR/USD was trading above the yesterday close most of the time today. As of 1:00 PM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1269, which is 0.37% higher than the previous close.

Commerzbank analyst Karen Jones provided her outlook on EUR/USD today. “EUR/USD sold off to, tested and held the base of the 2016 channel, today at 1.1129. It remains capped by the 55 day ma at 1.1308 and this offers initial resistance, however the intraday Elliott wave chart is suggesting a retest of potentially 1.1465/95, where we would expect failure. Provided it remains capped there our bias is negative and we shall shortly see a retest of the critical 1.1129/1.1058 support. A close below 1.1058 would target 1.0821, the March low enroute to the base of the second channel at 1.0564” said Jones.
