The Euro was seen surging across the board, including against the US Dollar. There was a move above the 1.1300 level, which is a positive sign. A major bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart of the EURUSD pair, which can be seen as a buy zone if the pair corrects lower.
Moreover, on the downside, the 21 hourly simple moving average along with 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 1.1238 low to 1.1366 high may also act as a support.
On the upside, if the EURUSD climbs further, then 1.1400 level may be tested.
