Today the pair is making further ascending efforts, but unconvincing and within yesterday's range for now. On the 1 hour chart trading is within wide range, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is trying to resume. Break above yesterday's top and nearest resistance 84.51 would encourage further recovery of the Dollar.
