The European currency appreciated from 1.3082 to 1.3240 yesterday, not matching the negative Interbank sentiment projection at around -13%, closing the day at 1.3224. This morning bulls pushed the pair even further up to 1.3260. On the 1 hour chart trading is within wide range, while on the 3 hour chart the downward channel is on hold. Break above the nearest resistance and today's top at 1.3260 may trigger further recovery of the Euro. Going bellow yesterday's bottom and first support at 1.3082, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.2967.
