“Recoveries so far stalled below 1.2800 level that attracts short term selling interest”, wrote FXstreet.com independent analyst Valeria Bednarik. “In the 4 hours chart the pair maintains a strong bearish momentum that suggests further slides are yet to be seen, eyeing now 1.2660 past November monthly low”, she added, pointing to corrective rallies to attract sellers up to 1.2880 resistance zone.
