4/27/2010 - EUR/USD - Price action on EUR/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has respected key resistance in the 1.3400 price region within a strong overall downtrend, and has dropped back down to re-test strong support just above the 1.3250 region. This occurs after price has consolidated within the past couple of days between these two support/resistance areas. The directional bias from a technical perspective continues to be bearish in line with the overall downtrend in the pair. A subsequent daily close below 1.3250 would be a significant bearish indication that could target further immediate support to the downside in the 1.3100 price region. The noted strong resistance around 1.3400 should continue to act as key resistance within the context of the current downtrend.
