Daily Chart Analysis

On the weekly chart we observe that the Euro moved up to the January 2012 low (orange line).

On the daily chart we see that EUR/USD respected (closed at) the 20 SMA yesterday and today price moved above the 20 SMA up to the January's low at 1.2624 (orange line) and the 61.80 % fib retracement at 1.2620. This resistance zone held the Euro and price fell back from this level into the price range of yesterday's daily candle. EUR/USD already failed to recapture the low from January 2012 on May 28th (recent high from May 28th coincides with January's low).
