Yesterday we identified the EUR/USD pair breaking above an ascending triangle bullish continuation pattern on a 30-minute chart. Today the EUR/USD reached our first target and is now taking a pause. Traders that remain bullish might want to consider tightening stops to meet the 1.09 support level. Key resistance is set at today's high around 1.1145. A break below 1.09 support may call for a test of the 1.1065 area.
