The European currency depreciated from 1.2493 to 1.2638 on Friday, matching the positive money flow sentiment at over 24%, closing the week at 1.2574. This morning the Euro is trading quietly, with movements at the upper end of Friday's range for now.
On the 1 hour chart the upward channel is making renewal attempts, while on the 3 hour chart wide range trading has formed. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.2638 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow Friday's bottom and first support at 1.2493, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.2380.
