Yesterday saw a slight falling off, or at least a reluctance to rise any further. We were unable to break up beyond the resistance zone just under 1.3700. It was a very quiet day overall and this is quite likely to continue as tomorrow we have a release of non-farm payroll data from the USA. In advance of this, USD pairs tend to be fairly dormant. In spite of that, we have had a rise this week.
The wider picture shows we are in another triangle, with an ascending trend line below us at around 1.3643, and an old descending trend line above us currently sitting at above 1.3710. We will probably not get any sustained breaks of either trend line until after the news release tomorrow.
In the meantime, I will be looking for longs confirmed by price action at the bullish trend line, but I will not be looking for a short until we reach 1.3748. The resistance around 1.3700 is uncertain.
There are no high-impact data releases scheduled for today that can be expected to directly affect the EUR. Later at 1:15pm London time there will be a release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change, which may affect the USD.
