prices are struggeling between 1.6537 and 1.6613, if any of those breacks should tell us trend direction, now it started a long trend, but it still needs the confirmation, maybe hitting 1.6537 before going up, so be very carefull with positions on beginning of the week. Happy weekend to all.

It's just a volatility and nothing else. Just wait and see. It might be going towards 1.65. Just wait and see.
