What to Expect from EUR/USD:


1.3000 level’s psychological push and overall uncertainties of Euro zone are at one side and the momentum of recent strong upward movement because of some optimism about the debt rescue plans are on the other side.

EUR/USD Outlook

As far as short-term move is concerned, a break of either of the mentioned low or high of the current range is required to expect any directional move. Any upward move should again find resistance below 1.3000 and a down side break should take EUR/USD towards 1.2757/1.2766 support zone.
