The Euro eased further, to nearly fully retrace 1.3540/1.3710 upleg, once 1.3600 handle was lost. Initial signals of basing are seen on hourly chart, as 1.3540/30 area is seen as ideal reversal point, between 50% and 61.8% of larger 1.3413/1.3710 ascend, to keep underlying bull-trend intact. To confirm this scenario and re-focus 1.3700 zone, regain of minimum 1.3650, 61.8% of 1.3710/1.3547 decline is required. Conversely, loss of 1.3540 handle, would risk extension towards 1.3500/1.3477, next support levels.

Cable enters near-term corrective phase sharp slide from last Friday peak at 1.5877, found footstep at 1.5684, just ahead of more important 1.5673, 28 Jan fresh 5-month low. Current bounce is seen as further consolidation ahead of fresh leg lower, as previous recovery attempt was rejected on approach to psychological / 200 day MA resistance that keeps the upside limited for now. Upside extension through 1.5700, sees strong barrier at 1.5760, Fib 38.2% of 1.5877/1.5684 and hourly 55 day EMA, with potential break higher to prolong the consolidation and allow for possible recovery towards Fibonacci resistances at 1.5780/1.5800, 50% and 61.8% retracement. On the downside, penetration of 1.5684/73, would open fresh bear-phase and expose 1.5600.

Fresh extension through psychological 93.00 barrier, show bulls firmly in play for possible test of our next upside targets at 93.75, Jan 2010 high and 94.00, round-figure barrier. Daily studies continue to point higher, despite overextended conditions that so far did not generate any reversal signal. On the other side, easing towards initial support and higher base at 92.50, was triggered by overbought 1/4h studies, with further corrective dips towards 92.00 zone, Fib 38.2% of 90.73/93.17 / 4h 20 day EMA, seen not harmful for near-term bulls.

Corrective action from last Friday’s fresh low at 0.9020, remains capped under initial barrier at 0.9120, 31 Jan highs / Fib 38.2% of 0.9291/0.9020 descend / 20 day EMA, keeping the downside at risk. As hourly studies are losing traction and 4h indicators remain in the negative territory, not much of recovery could be expected in the near-term, as long as market stays below psychological / 50% retracement barrier at 0.9200. This keeps the downside favored for now, as loss of 0.9020/00 support are would open 0.8930, Feb 2012 low and 0.8900, psychological support, next.
