I did not want today to consider the strengthening of the euro to 1.1375, as the price is on the U3 line. On the other hand, there is news that could expand pair. Also there is no bearish divergence between price and indicator stock. In this connection, I consider the projected growth of the EUR / USD pair to 1.1375 and then back up to 1.1320. There are risks fall to 1.1290 before firing up.
