NEW YORK (

TheStreet

) --

EUR-USD

: We look for the euro-dollar currency pair to head even higher now that it has broken out of its sideways trading range.

This development now leaves upside risk toward 1.3332, the euro-dollar pair's Aug. 6 high. A move above there will set off the pair's short-term uptrend, and it will target its .50 Fibonacci retracement (1.5143-1.1875 decline) at 1.3500.

A move beyond there will open further upside risk toward 1.3691, the April 12 high.

The pair's weekly RSI is bullish and pointing higher, supporting this view.

Alternatively, on pullbacks, the euro-dollar currency pair should aim at 1.3074, its 200-day exponential moving average, followed by 1.2922. A turn below the latter level would leave the pair targeting 1.2586, its Aug. 24 low and then 1.2522, its July 13 high.

Further weakness will see the pair target its June 20 high at 1.

Overall, with bull pressure pushing the pair above its sideways trading range, further strength is likely toward the 1.3332 level.
