EUR/USD

The Euro showed fairly rapid growth yesterday and tested the resistance level 1.2076. Despite the fact that the pair could not break this mark, now it is necessary to consider exceptionally long positions with this instrument, because the price did not rebound down, but stayed trading near this level. Thus, we can conclude that big players still want to push the price higher.
