EUR/USD's rebound from 1.3145 short term bottom extended further to as high as 1.3893 last week and closed strongly. Initial bias remains on the upside this week and current rise should target 61.8% retracement of 1.4548 to 1.3145 at 1.4012, which is close to 1.4 psychological level. On the downside, break of 1.3685 minor support will indicate that such rebound has likely finished and should flip bias back to the downside for retesting 1.3145 low.

In the bigger picture, as this point, we're still favoring the case that whole rise from 2010 low of 1.1875 has completed at 1.4939. Fall from 1.4939 is viewed as resuming the whole corrective fall from 2007 high of 1.6039 ad should eventually take out 1.1875 support. However, the stronger than expected rebound from 1.3145 reduced our confidence on this scenario. Sustained trading back above 1.4 psychological level will argue that fall from 1.4939 is finished and the corrective nature in turns indicate that rise from 1.1875 is not over.

In the long term picture, EUR/USD turned into a long term consolidation pattern since reaching 1.6039 in 2008. Such consolidation is still in progress and we'd expect range trading to continue for some time between 1.1639 and 1.6039.
