The Euro erased last Friday’s gains, after rally stalled near 1.3567 peak and subsequent reversal dipped close to 1.3500 handle. Negative sentiment was confirmed by gap-lower opening, with price moving in the lower part of 1.3460/1.3567, one-week range. Hourly studies turned negative and keep the downside at risk, while 4-hour indicators are at the midlines. Bearish trigger will be seen on violation of strong 1.3460 / 50 support zone, where the range floor is reinforced by 55DMA and double Fibonacci, 23.6% retracement of 1.3103/1.3567 upleg and 50% of 1.3337/1.3567, as break here is expected to confirm double-top formation and open fresh leg lower towards 1.3400, round figure / 38.2% of 1.3103/1.3567 next. Conversely, bounce above 1.35 barrier, would avert immediate downside risk and signal continuation of sideways trading.
