EUR/USD pushing higher after pullback
EUR/USD is back in the ascendancy this morning, coming off the back of a moderate pullback yesterday morning. We have seen the pair move higher since, as it seeks to follow the gains seen in the wake of the French election.
A break back above $1.0951 would give us the confirmation that we are going to see this uptrend persist. Given that we have broken above $1.0906, the wider uptrend remains in play, which means we could see a decent pullback of the $1.0569-$1.0951 rally. A break below $1.0855 would provide a warning sign that we could move into retracement mode.
