Key quotes

"The hourly chart shows retracing some from daily high posted at 1.3414 with a strong upward momentum coming from technical readings, and price above moving averages."



"In the 4 hours chart price stalled at a bearish 100 SMA, with indicators also aiming higher above their midlines."



"Immediate support stands at 1.3370, and as long as above it, the pair has scope to extend its rally up to 1.3430/40 area, level that capped the upside for the last 3 weeks."
