EUR/USD Extends Gains as US Celebrates the Thanksgiving Holiday

EUR/USD bulls are pushing higher after the FOMC meeting minutes revealed the Fed’s intention to decelerate the pace of rate hikes. While monetary policy and recession risks remain the primary drivers of geopolitical risks, a move above 1.0350 suggests that the pair may continue to rise.

As a weaker Dollar and falling yields continues to support Euro appreciation, the absence of US liquidity has resulted in lower trade volume which could contribute to larger than expected price moves.

With the major currency pair on track for its second month of gains, additional buying pressure has driven price action into a significant zone of technical resistance.

But, following last week’s attempt to break through 1.045, a rejection of the upper wick and a weekly close at around 1.032 highlighted the importance of this zone.
