The euro has retreated on Friday on speculation that Egypt's turmoil will affect the entire Middle East. Therefore, equities and risk sensitive pairs including EURUSD are trading lower and pressure is likely to remain high in the coming days, thus favoring the dollar, Swiss franc and yen. Technically - price pulled back from the 61.8% of 1.4280 to 1.2875 but the short-term studies remain bullish as long as current pullback doesn't continue towards former resistance region around 1.3430 and below. Hourly charts, including the 4-hrs, are showing notable signs of weakness and it may be worth looking for intra-day short setups in the 1.3650-1.3675 zone.

Support: 1.3575/00, 1.3530, 1.3430/50, 1.3360 and 1.3300
Resistance: 1.3650/75, 1.3730/50, 1.3800 and 1.3900
