On Thursday the Euro/Dollar increased insignificantly with nearly 90 pips. The European currency appreciated from 1.3536 to 1.3627 yesterday, not matching the negative Interbank sentiment projection at almost -6%, closing the day at 1.3607. This morning the Euro is trading quietly and without clear direction for now. On the 1 hour chart quotes are testing the upper limit of the the downward channel, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is trying to resume. Break above the nearest resistance and yesterday's top at 1.3627 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow yesterday's bottom and first support at 1.3536, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.3419.
