EUR/USD - A golden cross pattern suggests more upside to come

Date: 23rd May,2017 by Timothy Straiton

Current level on May 23rd , 2017 is 1.1249, trading above the monthly pivot level of 1.0804. A golden cross pattern has been formed today. This pattern is a bullish breakout and is formed when the 50 day moving average crosses above the 200 day moving average. The current rate is 3.75% above the 200 day moving average, which is by no means over extended, although the 14 day relative strength index is now at 73% and could bring about a short-term recoil to the downside. Our medium-term upside target is 1.1734, which marks the Fibonacci 38.2 percent retracement from the low of 1.0339 made in January 2017 , measured from the high of 1.3992 made in May 2014.
