On Friday the Euro/Dollar continued decreasing with around 140 pips. The European currency depreciated from 1.3684 to 1.3542 on Friday, not matching the positive Interbank sentiment projection at almost +21%, closing the week at 1.3575. This morning partial correction is in place, but trading is still within Friday's range. On the 1 hour chart the upward channel is on hold, while on the 3 hour chart quotes are testing the lower limit of the upward channel. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.3684 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow Friday's bottom and first support at 1.3542, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.3430. Today's focus is on Germany Manufacturing orders at 11 GMT. Quotes are moving above the 20 and bellow the 50 EMA on the 1 hour chart, indicating short term bullish and medium term bearish pressure.
