EUR/USD 1.2747 - 30 August 2010

EUR/USD Open 1.2753 High 1.2768 Low 1.2690 Close 1.2757

On Friday the Euro/Dollar traded slightly upwards, making insignificant rise. The European appreciated from 1.2690 to 1.2768 on Friday, matching the positive Interbank sentiment projection, at around +1%, closing the week at 1.2757. This morning bears are pushing down. On the 1 hour chart the downward channel has slowed down, while on the 3 hour chart the new downward channel is still forming. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.2768 may trigger further recovery of the Euro. Going bellow Friday's bottom and first support at 1.2690, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.2560. Today's focus is on EU 16 Economic sentiment index and Business climate indicator at 9 GMT. Quotes are moving just above the 20 and 50 EMA on the 1 hour chart, indicating slim bullish pressure.
