EUR/USD: Hourly Bullish Head and Shoulders Validated
EUR/USD has broken the resistance at 1.3429 (08/02/2013 high), validating a short-term bullish head and shoulders with an implied target at 1.3533. Hourly resistances are at 1.3476 (12/02/2013 high) and 1.3578. An hourly support can be found at 1.3410 (intraday low, see also short-term rising trendline).
In the bigger multi-week time frame we note that the higher low in July 2012 (compared to July 2010) and the recent new high above the strong resistance at 1.3487 (24/02/2012 high) indicates an improvement in the underlying trend. A move towards 1.3791 (measured move implied by the 1.2043 to 1.3172 rise from the retracement at 1.2662) remains likely. A strong resistance is at 1.4247 (27/10/2011 high).
