The Euro ended week in which the pair posted fresh 3-month low at 1.2754 and 3–week high at 1.3205. Price closed at 1.3069, 200DMA and near 50% retracement of entire 1.3414/1.2754 downleg, with downside being protected at 1.3000, psychological support and higher platform. Two day consolidation moves in a narrow range, following pullback from 1.3205 high, with hourly studies holding neutral tone. From the other side, positive 4-hour structure and formation on bullish pennant, suggests that bulls are in play and look for renewed attempt higher. Sustained break above 1.3100 is required to confirm and open key short-term barrier at 1.3205. Conversely, violation of 1.3000 base and 1.2980, 50% retracement of 1.2754/1.3205 recovery rally, would soften the tone and increase downside risk.

The pair trades in two-day consolidative range, off fresh low at 98.22, posted on 11/07, with 99.68 high being reached so far. Series of higher lows from 98.22, suggest further recovery, with notion being supported by Friday’s inside day candle and positively aligned hourly studies.

The Aussie remains under pressure, as last Friday’s fresh weakness dented psychological 0.9000 support and probed levels last time traded in Sep 2010. Weekly close above 0.9000 handle, sees potential for limited corrective action, as technicals turned negative, following last week’s recovery rejection at 0.93 zone and subsequent fall, signaling resumption of larger downtrend. Initial resistance lay at 0.9115/50, Fibonacci 38.2% and 50% of Thu/Fri fall from 0.9304, with key barrier at 0.9200, expected to cap stronger rallies. Fresh weakness below 0.9000, would open 0.8900, round figure support and 0.8888, Fibonacci 100% expansion of the downwave from 1.0581.
