EUR/USD medium-term price trend
The EUR/USD pair started to gain traction above 1.1700 last week, as the US Dollar Index gave back a significant portion of its recent gains.
EUR/USD analysis over the medium term shows that buyers need to anchor the price above 1.1780 to attract further technical buying interest.
The daily time frame shows that a large broadening wedge pattern is located between 1.1780 and 1.2100.
If bulls move the price above 1.1780, and perform a series of daily price closes above this area, then medium-term traders are likely to turn bullish again.
Technical analysis highlights the 1.1840 and 1.1870 levels as the key upside barriers prior to the technically important 1.1900 region.
Traders should note that traders are likely to turn bearish towards the EUR/USD this week if the price starts to hold below 1.1690.
