The quote not only bounced off 21-DMA but also crossed the 50-DMA to post a considerable upside bias the previous day. Additionally, the pair’s recently higher lows of prices join the same pattern on RSI to also portray a bullish scenario.
However, double tops marked since mid-November around 1.1385 guard the quote’s immediate upside, a break of which will direct EUR/USD buyers towards a multi-day-old descending trend line resistance near 1.1400.
It should be noted, though, that a clear run-up beyond the 1.1400 threshold will be enough to propel the quote towards the 100-DMA level of 1.1512 and then to October’s low near 1.1525.
Meanwhile, pullback moves may initially be challenged by the 21-DMA and 50-DMA, close to 1.1335 and 1.1320 in that order.
Following that, an ascending support line from December 15, near 1.1290, becomes crucial to watch as a break of which will recall the EUR/USD sellers targeting 2021 low of 1.1186.
