EUR/USD moves above 1.2000 for the first time since early March

It is the first time since 4 March that EUR/USD has climbed above 1.2000 and the break higher here comes as the dollar is seen offered across the board in European trading.

USD/JPY has also fallen below support @ 108.34-41 to fall to 108.21 – its lowest level since 5 March as the greenback slides. There's not much of a catalyst as this looks to be more technical and flow driven if anything else.

This now puts the focus on the 100-day moving average (red line) @ 1.2051 but if that gives way, the upside could be targeting 1.2200 here for the pair.
