- Euro gained during the London session and traded higher against the Aussie Dollar.
- EURAUD broke a major resistance area, which is a signal of more gains in the near term.
- Euro Zone Services PMI published by the Markit Economics came in at 54.2 in December 2015, more than the forecast.
- German Services PMI was also reported and posted an increase from 55.4 to 56.0 in Dec 2015.
The EURAUD pair gained handsomely during the past couple of sessions and traded above a major resistance area. There was a bearish trend line on the 4-hours chart, which was breached to open the gates for more gains in the near term.
The pair is now above the 50, 200 and 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart, suggesting buyers are in control. Buying dips from the current levels may be considered, especially if the pair moves towards the broken trend line.
On the upside, the next level of resistance can be around 1.5200.
