EUR/USD Open 1.3755 High 1.3786 Low 1.3671 Close 1.3747

On Wednesday the Euro/Dollar resumed increasing with around 115 pips. The European currency appreciated from 1.3671 to 1.3786 yesterday, matching the positive Interbank sentiment projection at nearly +4%, closing the day at 1.3747. This morning the pair is making further climbing attempts, but is moving still within yesterday's range for now. On the 1 hour chart new upward channel is forming, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is trying to renew. Break above the nearest resistance and yesterday's top at 1.3786 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow yesterday's bottom and first support at 1.3671, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.3560. Today's focus is on Germany GDP Q4, Italy Retail sales, Consumer and Business confidence, and EU17 Economic sentiment and Business climate indicator, at 7, 9 and 10 GMT respectively.
