EUR/USD – At the Center of the Upward Channel…
- Although it strongly tested the 1.0873 resistance with the strength it received from the 1.0765 support and reached the 1.0887 level, it was unable to break this resistance and retreated and closed slightly above the opening price.

In an upside break from this level, 1.0935 level can be followed as new resistance.

Today, the uptrend continues. If the positive movements continue, the 1928.95 level may appear as resistance. However, we can meet with the support of 1896.55, with the possible profit sales showing the strength. This support can be considered as an important level during the day as it was tested yesterday.

If the movements continue in favor of Sterling in the pair, our next focus will be 1.2660 resistance.
