  1. What news caused the up-spike of the EUR/USD of about 70 pips at 11:57 ?
     
  2. Blew just over 1.4200. I'll bet a lot of shorts got stopped out on that one. Conspiracy theories.....
     
  3. stop loss avalange. Euro resistances + a few pips act like magnets recently, quite easy long. Think now it took out the final stops we might see a retrace during the next days, I don't see it advancing much further.
