The euro/dollar on Tuesday closed slightly up. Support for the pair came from a weakening dollar. Traders are continuing to analyse the consequences of Brexit. The euro closed at 1.1063 where it still sits trading.
Market participants are waiting for news from the EU leaders summit taking place in Brussels. News is slow and what there is isn’t enough to have a real effect on the market. Whilst there’s no decision made regarding the UK, I’ll risk saying the euro will again strengthen, this time to 1.1123.

The euro/dollar has restored to the 112th degree and from there a downward correction followed. Above the balance line a triangle in a triangle is forming. I expect the price to exit upwards from there. I fully understand that the fluctuations up and down will persist whilst the situation with the UK still hangs in the balance. However, I reckon we’re to see an upwards movement of the euro/dollar as part of a correction after Friday, 24th June’s fall. My forecast for growth is to cancel with a close of the hourly candle below 1.1030.
