EUR/USD levels and events to watch
Volatility in the forex market increased today, particularly after US data. On Tuesday, it could continue to rise further with Janet Yellen’s speech and ahead of Friday’s NFP report.
Despite losing ground every day during last week, EUR/USD still remains above the 20-day moving average and also it held a bullish bias. The upside continuities to be limited by 1.1300 - 1.1330; a consolidation on top could open the doors for an extension to 1.1450 - 1.1500. On the flip side, under 1.1100, the US dollar could gain momentum for a short-term rally.
