The Euro remains in consolidative sideways mode around 1.37 handle, confirmed by yesterday’s Doji candle. The price action moves within 1.3690/1.3723 range, with neutral tone prevailing on hourly studies. On the other side, bullish 4-hour structure keeps the upside favored for fresh extension through pivotal 1.3738 peak, to resume larger uptrend off 1.3480 zone, towards targets at 1.3765, Fibonacci 100 expansion of the wave from 1.3561 and previous congestion tops at 1.38 zone in extension. The downside is for now protected by hourly 55SMA, with possible further easing required to hold above 1.3660, Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of 1.3561/1.3723 upleg / bull-trendline off 1.3482, to keep near-term bulls intact.

The pair enters corrective phase after fresh bulls cracked 1.68 barrier and peaked at 1.6821, levels last time visited in Nov 2009. Corrective easing probed 1.67 handle, with dips being so far contained by hourly 55SMA. Hourly indicators are reversing higher, while positive 4-hour studies maintain overall bullish tone. However, further easing through 1.6670, previous peaks and Fibonacci 38.2% of 1.6424/1.6821, would keep near-term bulls in play, while the price holds above 1.66 handle, 38.2% retracement of 1.6250/1.6821 rally. Extension above 1.6821 opens next targets at 1.6877, Nov 2009 peak and 1.6900, break of which to bring psychological 1.7000 resistance in focus.

The price accelerated higher from 101.75 higher low and fully retraced 102.69/101.37 descend on extension to 102.73 so far. This sidelines downside risk and turns near-term focus higher, as 4-hour indicators are breaking into positive territory. Sustained break above 102.70 is required to confirm higher low at 101.75 and resume recovery off 100.74, towards 103.09, 50% retracement of 105.43/100.74 descend and lower top of 29 Jan at 103.43 in extension. However, overbought hourly conditions suggest corrective action should precede fresh rally, with 102.20, Fibonacci 38.2% of 101.37/102.73, seen as ideal reversal point to keep fresh bulls intact. Alternatively, extension below 102 handle, round figure support / 50% retracement, is expected to neutralize bulls.

The pair consolidates recent gains off 0.8926 low that peaked at 0.9079. Consolidative range is established within 0.9015 and 0.9079, with near-term term price action being near the lower boundary, following repeated upside rejection that left marginally higher high at 0.9079. Further easing below 0.9000 handle and trendline support at 0.8990 would delay immediate bulls and keep the price within larger congestion of 0.8900/0.9079 and only break below 0.8900 zone, higher platform / Fibonacci 38.2% of 0.8658/0.9079 would neutralize. Near-term studies are losing traction and support such scenario. However, overall bullish tone sees fresh extension of recovery rally, once consolidative action is completed. Break above pivotal 0.9084 barrier to open 0.9146, 100SMA and 0.9165, 10 Dec 2013 high.
