Quote of the day: The possession of facts is knowledge, the use of them is wisdom. Thomas Jefferson


Trading strategy: stand aside

The euro is back into the 1.36 zone after the 4th rebound from the 1.3440 bottom, last week's top side along with the downward trend line resistance coming from 1.3840 being under pressure. If current break above 1.3600 is sustainable - extended gains towards 1.3800 and 1.3850 are likely. Short term sentiment remains bearish as long as the 1.38 region does not come under buying pressure but recent recoveries from 1.3440 provide symptoms of short-term trend exhaustion, suggesting a reversal. Intra-day support starts at 1.3600 backed by 1.3550/60 and 1.3500. If price pulls back from current levels, keep an eye on the 1.3540/60 as that's where the EUR may catch a bid and still not signaling a resume of downtrend, remaining in a bullish structure development phase. Current exchange rate is 1.3635 @06:30

Support: 1.3600, 1.3540/60, 1.3500 and 1.3440/50
Resistance: 1.3640/50, 1.3680/00, 1.3780 and 1.3850/60
Market sentiment: long term - bullish, medium term - bearish, short term - bearish, intra-day - bullish
