Forex Signal Update
The FX Leaders Team finished with four winners from five trades in a strong day for the team.
EUR/USD – Active Signal
We are in another EUR/USD signal as price has been sucked towards the 1.1300 level. As mentioned there is selling pressure here, so we are looking for this one to turn our way.
Oil – Active Signal
Oil has spiked sharply higher, led upward by a bullish oil inventory report yesterday and strength in equity markets. We are still looking at a long entry and we are now above resistance.
