This morning the pair dropped further down to 1.3710, from which point began to recover. On the 1 hour chart quotes are testing the lower limit of the upward channel, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is still trying to resume. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.3838 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow today's bottom and first support at 1.3710, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.3592.
