“yesterday’s rebound from a fresh 2-week low of 1.1526 (Europe) and then intra-day ‘sterling-led’ rally to 1.1616 in New York morning suggests euro’s recent decline from August’s 1.1734 peaks has made a temp. low there and consolidation with upside bias remains for gain to 1.1649/59 res, break there would encourage for subsequent headway towards 1.1690.

Only below 1.1564 dampens present bullish scenario on euro, however, reckon 1.1526/30 sup would remain intact.”
