The European currency appreciated from 1.2868 to 1.2991 on Friday, matching the positive money flow sentiment at above +27%, closing the week at 1.2973. This morning the euro is trading quietly, with movements at the upper end of Friday's range for now.
On the 1-hour chart range trading has formed, while on the 3-hour chart the upward channel has turned into wide trading scope. Break above the nearest resistance and Friday's top at 1.2991 may trigger further strengthening of the euro. Going below Friday's bottom and first support at 1.2868, however, would confirm continuation of the bearish trend, towards next objective downwards 1.2750.
