After breaking strongly through the 1.26 level and surging higher to finish last week, the Euro eased off for a couple of days before resuming its march back towards 1.30 in the last day.Â Its easing off presented an opportunity for consolidation.Â Now that it has moved through the 1.28 level, this level is also available to provide some support should the Euro retrace a little.Â The next major level is clearly 1.30 as this level provided significant support for the Euro way back in February to April.Â It is highly likely to play a role should the Euro return there in the near future.
We saw the Euro finish last week very strongly as it not only moved away strongly from 1.26 but also smashed through any potential resistance at 1.27 too. (Daily chart / 4 hourly chart below)
