The Euro surged above Dec-Apr down-trend and peaked at 1.1027, the highest level since Mar 26. On Monday, the pair is likely to be less volatile amid Easter holidays. Nevertheless, it can be influenced by any positive or negative impetus, as the closest resistance is located as far as 1.1094 and the nearest support lies at 1.0903.
