EUR/USD Grinds Higher - 1.1662 Key Level

Though we cannot say for sure which of the patterns we are in, I am leaning towards a continuation of a fourth wave triangle. The triangle pattern implies EUR/USD remains supported above 1.1662 and moves into the 1.19 handle, possibly as high as 1.20.

If the fourth wave was a flat pattern and if the flat has previously ended then it implies we are travelling higher in the fifth and final wave. Under this scenario, EUR/USD likely breaks above 1.20 and may move as high as 1.22.

The sentiment picture continues to support bullish patterns. The current sentiment reading is -1.4 which is a bullish signal. View the live sentiment reading to keep on top of any changes that may occur.
