    The single currency continues to move within one-week 1.3400/1.3255 range, with yesterday’s slide being contained at psychological 1.3300 support. Bounce higher brings positive sentiment and sets scope for possible attack at strong 1.3400 barrier. Positive hourly studies support the notion, as the rally retraces 76.4% of 1.3397/1.3280 descend. Holding above 1.3300 base, reinforced by 55 day EMA, keeps near-term bulls in play, while break here would attract lower range boundaries.

    Res: 1.3370, 1.3400, 1.3418, 1.3485
    Sup: 1.3350, 1.3330, 1.3300, 1.3280



    Negative near-term tone continues to drive the pair lower, as the price approached next target and psychological support at 1.5800, after fully retracing Nov/Jan 1.5826/1.6380 rally. Clear break here to signal fresh bear phase, as the pair breaks below the range, established in Sep 2012. Immediate target at 1.5800 remains in near-term focus, with penetration here to open 1.5753, 28 Aug low, possibly 1.5700, round figure support. Any bounce higher would be seen as corrective with initial barrier at 1.5900, also 200 day MA. Only regain of 1.6000 handle would ease bear-pressure.

    Res: 1.5864, 1.5900, 1.5922, 1.5950
    Sup: 1.5826, 1.5805, 1.5753, 1.5700



    Fresh weakness off upside rejection level at 90.10, cracked 89.00 support, also 50% of 87.78/90.23, with losses being temporarily contained by 55 day EMA at 88.88. This softens near-term tone and increases risk of further reversal, with near-term focus at Fibonacci supports at 88.72 and 88.36, 61.8% and 76.4% retracement. Corrective actions face good resistance at 89.30/50 zone, while only regain of psychological 90.00 barrier, would shift focus higher again.

    Res: 89.35, 89.50, 89.85, 90.10
    Sup: 88.88, 88.72, 88.36, 88.12



    The near-term price action seems to be running out of steam, as the price slides to consolidation range floor and psychological support at 0.9300 zone. Hourly indicators show negative readings, as price holds below 20 day EMA, with immediate risk seen on a break below 0.9300/0.9280, range floor / 55 day EMA that would signal completion of H&S pattern, shown on 4-h chart and open way for further easing towards 0.9250/00. Conversely, break above 0.9350, would improve and re-focus upper barriers at 0.9387 and 0.9400.

    Res: 0.9350, 0.9387, 0.9400, 0.9430
    Sup: 0.9292, 0.9284, 0.9248, 0.9215
