Just as has been mentioned a few times, the Euro has finally made its way to 1.30, seemingly unabated for the last week.Â It met reasonable resistance around 1.26 and to a lesser extend at 1.28 however it has since pushed through there moving strongly up towards 1.30.Â For the last several hours, it has met very stiff resistance at 1.30 as a rush of supply has entered the market and very willingly sold at these present levels.Â The 1.30 level is significant as it is a round number and an obvious level for decisions to be made, as well as the level which provided significant support for the Euro way back in February to April.
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)
