Trading Recommendations

Pair prospects remain positive as long as it trades above 98.80 support area. At the same time we expect it to continue growing above 101.50 minor resistance to high 103.75. In the future, it will confirm the overcoming of medium-term growth more towards 110.00.

Only a break and consolidation below 98.80 will cancel the positive expectations and will open the way to reduce 93.50 and support around 92.50 or 90.00 mark.
