This morning the pair is making new recovery efforts, but it's moving within yesterday's range for now.

Break above the nearest resistance and yesterday's top at 1.4036 may trigger further strengthening of the Euro. Going bellow yesterday's bottom and first support at 1.3954, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.3832.
