EUR/USD searches for a breakout, runs up to 1.2250
EUR/USD is up to its highest levels since early January, threatening a firm break above the February high of 1.2243.
With USD/CNH breaking to its lowest levels since 2018 and breaking a key technical region, that may yet result in added weakness for the dollar unless Chinese officials decide to smooth the process – though today’s supposed efforts were rather half-hearted it seems.
As for EUR/USD, this sets up a good spot for buyers technically if they can hold a daily break above the February high of 1.2243.
That will pave the way for a potential retest of the January highs above 1.2300 next.
