The Euro corrects yesterday’s fresh losses that probed below 1.36 handle and so far found support at 1.3570, just ahead of trendline support at 1.3550. Bounce to 1.3650 was capped by 4-hour 20DMA, as the price attempts to stabilize above 1.36 support. Slight positive tone exists on hourly chart, with 4-hour indicators starting to reverse that may be supportive for further recovery action. Bears are on stand-by on lower ADX timeframes, with clearance of initial barriers at 1.3650, yesterday’s high and 1.3664/75, Fibonacci 38.2% of 1.3817/1.3570 downleg / 02/01 lower high, seen as minimum requirement to spark further recovery. Strong barrier at 1.3720, Fibonacci 61.8% retracement / 20/55DMA’s bearish crossover and broken bull trendline off 1.3294 low, is seen capping upside attempts for now, with fresh bears expected to take control once corrective action is completed. The notion is supported by reversal pattern developed on daily chart, with break below 1.3570, expected to open 1.3525 higher platform / Fibonacci 61.8% retracement, reinforced by daily 100DMA. Conversely, sustained break above 1.3720 would neutralize bears and re-focus upper targets at 1.38 zone.
