The Euro rose first on Monday on the good news for Europe over the weekend, than lost all its gains. Euro/Dollar increased from 1.2732 to 1.3085 yesterday, in line with the Interbank sentiment projection, at nearly +6%, from which point is started dropping to where it started, closing the day at 1.2784. On the 1 hour chart the downward channel today was disturbed with strong upward correction, than tried to get back in shape. Break above the nearest resistance and yesterday’s top at 1.3085 may trigger further recovery of the Euro. Going bellow today’s bottom and first support at 1.2706, however, should confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next target 1.2618.
