EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for September 17, 2018

Based on the early price action, the key area to watch is the Gann Angle/50% price cluster at 1.1626 to 1.1625. Early in the session, the EUR/USD tested this area. A sustained move over 1.1626 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move gains enough traction then look for a minimum test of 50% of the break from 1.1723 to 1.1618. This intraday target is 1.1671.
