The U.S. dollar is taking its cue from political turmoil surrounding the Trump administration. In times of political uncertainty and unpredictability in the U.S., many investors got rid of their dollar positions which contribute to the recent dollar weakness. The euro, in return, benefited from the weakening greenback and rose towards 1.1175. There is no major resistance until 1.12, so euro bulls may tend to test that level before taking profits on euro long positions. Following the strong rally in the EUR/USD and four consecutive days of higher highs the pair finds itself in overbought territory, a fact that increases the likelihood of near-term corrections.
While we see a next hurdle at around 1.12, a break above 1.1220 could push the euro even higher towards 1.13. However, traders should now prepare for potential corrections. Current support levels are seen at 1.11, 1.1080 and 1.1020.
There are no major economic reports scheduled for release from the Eurozone but it might be worth watching ECB President Draghi‘s remarks on monetary policy when he speaks in Tel Aviv at 17:00 UTC.
The pound sterling was accompanied by a slight upward tilt, even if the 1.30-resistance level still remains unbroken. Once that level is breached to the upside, we could see sterling rising towards 1.3040 and possibly even 1.3120.
The U.K. Retail Sales report is due for release at 8:30 UTC and could have an impact on the price action in the cable. If the pound drops back below 1.2930 it could find a next halt at around 1.2870.
