The EUR/USD pair is targeting the 55-day SMA.
- EUR/USD recovers initial decline and retraces 1.0700 and above.
- Directly up is now the 55-day SMA at 1.0774.
The EUR/USD pair partially recovers the positions lost on Wednesday in forex, and it manages to restore the zone above the 1.0700 figure on Thursday.
Given the current price action of the EUR/USD pair, a continuation of the rebound seems likely, at least in the very short term. However, the next upside barrier is now appearing at the 55-day SMA, today at 1.0774 ahead of the 3-month resistance line around 1.0820.
A break of this zone should ease selling pressure and allow for a likely move towards a weekly high at 1.0936 (April 21).
The RSI near 55 also indicates that further forex growth may still be in store for the EUR/USD pair until it hits the overbought zone (> 70).
