In the previous EUR/USD forex forecast review we noted the bullish possibility of the currency pair. The confidence level in the Euro Zone seemed to be picking up and risk taking activities were happening.
The SMA 200 is now resting on the 1.36 region and it may prove to be a strong resistance. The EUR/USD seems to be consolidating right above 1.34 for the moment and we may be entering into the ranging phrase. If you refer to the weekly chart, the currency pair is now at the top of a bearish channel.
