Key Quotes

“The euro will begin the new week with a four-session advance and a three-week rally in tow.  It has traded above the mid-October high and key retracement objective found in the $1.1880-$1.1885 area.”

“Technically, it suggests a return to the early September high near $1.2090.  Above there, the 50% retracement of the euro's decline since the mid-2014 peak is found near $1.2165-$1.2170.  This area also appears to correspond to a measuring objective of a possible head and shoulders bottom pattern in the euro.   A note of caution comes from the fact that the sharpness of the euro's advance as left it above the upper Bollinger Band.”
