The pair trades near the highs at 1.6599/1.6602, 1.30% above today's opening price. On the upside the next resistance lies at 1.6610 and above at 1.6640 (Oct 21 highs).

Liviu Flesar, technical analyst at InnerFX affirms: Both short-term and intra-day charts are bullish and last three days' price action suggests a re-test of 1.6700 within the coming days. We'll see if it manages to clear the 1.6500 barrier for now, as such breakout would be an important bullish confirmation.
