EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for February 12, 2021Late session upside target is resistance cluster at 1.2149 to 1.2151. The latter is a potential trigger point for surge into 1.2190 to 1.2197
The Euro is trading slightly lower late Friday after clawing back most of its earlier loss on a sudden turnaround in the U.S. Dollar. Treasury yields rose, which should have pressured the single currency while supporting the greenback, but that wasn’t the case. Steady demand for risk also helped underpin the Euro.
Nonetheless, the price action suggests the moves may have been fueled by position-squaring ahead of the long U.S. holiday weekend. The U.S. financial markets are closed on Monday due to President’s Day.
