According to Mohammed Isah, analyst at FXTechtrategy, On the whole, though biased to the upside medium term ,EUR is now being challenged by corrective weakness: The bigger test if continued corrective declines are seen lies at the 1.4446 level, its Aug 09 high. That level which now coincides with its MT rising trendlineshould provide a strong support and push the pair back up again. On the other hand, in order for its medium term uptrend to be triggered and its present corrective weakness cut short, a return above the 1.4844 level must occur putting the next upside at the 1.4875 level, representing its Sept 21'09 high ahead of the its psycho level at 1.5000 and then the 1.5082 level, its Aug 10'08 high.
