The pair remains in the lower band of the range around 1.2490, coming down from tops near 1.2580 posted in early trade.

In the view of Dmytro Bondar, Technical Strategist at RBS, the pair “has broken the 1.2500 support, but found another one near the 1.2384 level, being the 23.6% retracement from the 2012 impulse wave. There is little conviction from a technical point of view, as the next big move would depend on the test of this level”.
