EUR/USD relevant levels As of writing the pair is advancing 0.27% at 1.1411 and a breakout of 1.1460 (monthly high Sep.18) would target 1.1475 (downtrend from May 2014 tops) and then 1.1714 (high post-PBoC move Aug.24). On the flip side, the immediate support lines up at 1.1300 (psychological level) followed by 1.1253 (55-day sma) and then 1.1234 (61.8% Fibo of 1.3993-1.0462).
