EUR/AUD is still down -1.17% for the week, with prospects still bullish for the longer term, according to IFR Markets analyst Richard Sexton. “Big picture still bullish,” he said. Aussie has been second strongest currency among majors in last 2 trading days, only below Pound.

Immediate support tot the downside for EUR/AUD lies at recent fresh 2-month lows 1.2467, followed by 200 day SMA at 1.2421, and Nov 15 highs/Jan 07 lows 1.2499/1.2505. To the upside, closest resistance shows at current levels as yesterday's/Jan 17 lows 1.2555, followed by April 16 2010 lows 1.2570, and yesterday's highs/Tuesday's lows 1.2604/1.2595.
