Another day of upmove and downmove has passed, again with small volatility. EUR is still in a downside channel, however for now 1.2660 holds. Again bad data from Germany, which is good because ECB in fact needs a cheap EUR, but the speculations about the start of ECB bond buying have done a bad favor increasing the price, which does much more difficulties for the countries in trouble. We are very near to the positive Ichimoku bottom @ 1.2660, break below will take us to 1.2600 and maybe below who knows. But i think it's too early for a break below positive Icimoku and the price in following days will recover to 1.2900 and a little above. For testing and breaking 1.3000 we need a strongly positive news from EU or a strongly negative news for the dollar, but there still aren't any. First resistance comes @ 1.2750, second @ 1.2810. I do not expect break of 1.2810 today.
GOLD is consolidating and waiting for a signal from the EUR, but as the dollar is too strong for some long time GOLD is not able to do a rally.
Today we shall have some very important US data, and some mid important data from France and Spain, EUR has gained somehow, but this is just profit taking, EUR is still in a downside channel and highly pressured to the downside.
SHORT EUR @ 1.2740-50 SL1.2760-65 TP 1.2660 (EUR is trying to recover, be careful, stop may be hit here)
