Recap: Our long from 1.2600 yesterday nearly got stopped out as the pair dipped to 1.2558 in afternoon trading, and then jumped up to 25 pips in the profit. 1.2550 support held firm. We are going to stay in the trade with our SL still down at 1.2550. The pair appears to be consolidating once more for another stab upward (bullish flag pattern).
Today is a US holiday, with all US banks closed, which may give the Euro a bit of an edge throughout the day.

Trading Idea: As mentioned above our long from 1.26 is still alive and well with our 50 pip SL and targets at 80 pips. Normally we would look to close and get short on a support break but with the US Banks closed we will pass on that setup today.
