Recap: We got whipped out of our positions yesterday as our short was closed on the resistance break at 1.2930 for a 20 pip loss and triggered our long. That long got about 35 pips into the profit before it started creeping back down and hit our SL for a 30 pip loss (right around current price).

We are going to trade off the longer-term rising support today (bottom blue line). That rising support has been supporting price for the better part of several months and a break below could signal another challenge down to 1.26 and below.
