EUR/USD 1,4479

The Euro fell more than 50 pips in 60 minutes and trimmed gains. The EUR/USD retreated sharply after hitting at 1.4517 the highest price in 14 months following Wall Street opening, accelerating the downside below 1.4500. The decline found support around 1.4435 and currently the pair is trading above 1.4450.

Despite the recent slide the common currency is still gaining on a daily basis against the Dollar and holds more than 85 pips above Asian session lows.

Technically speaking, according to Andrei Tratseuski from Forex Club, intermediate resistance hovers at 1.4675 “represented by 127.1% Fibonacci extension of major high and major low as well as the highest level reached in 2010” while to the downside current support lingers at the first standard deviation at 1.4375.
