Key Quotes



"The bullish implications from the triangle breakout last November have finally materialized and received an additional boost via last months break above key- pivotal resistance at 1.7044/49 (2009 high/2005 low).



"This opened fresh upside potential to massive resistance at 1.7332 (50 %/monthly Ichimoku-lagging/c=a) and another T-junction at 1.7768 (C = A on higher scale)."



"Setbacks could be severe, offering minimum down-potential to 1.6387 and possibly to 1.6102 (minor 38.2 %/weekly breakout line) with the option to extend to 1.5997 (int. 50 %) in case 1.6102 would fail to provide support."



"In the short-run, we are now focusing on a range breakout between 1.7332 and 1.6996 (minor 38.2 %) to receive an early indication whether the broader up- trend is going to be prolonged or whether the risk of running into a deeper setback is increasing. The latter would receive additional evidence via a break below daily trend line support at 1.6836."
