Key quotes

"Having been confined to tight ranges, dollar selloff seems larger than it actually easy on a first glance, yet its weakness is undeniable."

"As for the EUR/USD, the hourly chart shows price at fresh highs above 1.2750 and above its moving averages that remain pretty horizontal due to latest range, while indicators aim higher above their midlines."

"In the 4 hours chart, RSI turned higher above its midline, having found intraday support in a mild bullish 20 SMA now around 1.2670. Immediate resistance comes at the 1.2780/90 area, with a break above probably fueling the run up to recent highs in the 1.2840 price zone."
