NEW YORK ( -- The euro-dollar currency pair (EUR-USD) made a strong bullish offensive this week, taking out its Dec. 14 high at 1.3494.

As long as the pair can hold at more than 1.3494 it should target the 1.3785 level.

Further out, the currency pair's Nov. 8 high at 1.4083 level will come in as the next upside objective. A violation of this level would leave the euro-dollar targeting the 1.4281 level that was reached in early November.

The pair's relative strength index is bullish and pointing higher, supporting this view.

In order for the euro-dollar to cancel its current bullish tone, it would have to break and hold at less than 1.2874. This would bring further weakness toward the 1.2713 level and possibly lower toward 1.2600 and then 1.2500.

Overall, the euro-dollar currency pair is likely to see more gains after it continued to build on its strength this week.
