Euro Tries To Rebound Against U.S. Dollar
EUR/USD has recently made an attempt to settle below the support at the 20 EMA at 1.2020 while the U.S. dollar found itself under pressure against a broad basket of currencies.
The U.S. Dollar Index tested the resistance at the 20 EMA at 91.35 but failed to develop sufficient upside momentum and pulled back. The nearest support level for the U.S. Dollar Index is located at 91. If the U.S. Dollar Index gets to the test of this level, EUR/USD will get more support.
