“Support is at the uptrend line on 4-hour chart, now at 1.5733, as long as the trend line support holds, uptrend is expected to continue and next target would be at 1.6000 area. Key support is at 1.5719, only break below this level could indicate that the upward move from 1.5484 is complete,” the realtime forex news site adds.
Mizuho Corporate Bank writes that the currency pair is pushing into the daily Ichimoku ‘cloud’.
It adds in its analysis for online FX trading: “The daily close just above the 26-day moving average at 1.5835 has turned momentum to marginally bullish, as hoped, and we now favour a rally to 1.6000 – possibly a rush.”
