The Euro spiked sharply higher to trade near 1.1240 versus the US Dollar, but it found sellers. The main reason for the EURUSD pair to pause the upside was due to a contracting triangle pattern formed on the hourly chart.
The upper trend line of the highlighted contracting triangle pattern prevented the upside move on a number of occasions. As a result, there was a downside move.
On the downside, the contracting triangle pattern support trend line along with another trend line is protecting losses and acting as a support. The pair may even bounce soon from the highlighted support.
