Key quotes



"Technically, the strong upward momentum seen in the hourly chart suggest the pair will have little trouble to overcome current static resistance area, as momentum heads higher in positive territory, and 20 SMA heads north below current price."



"In the 4 hours chart the technical picture is also supportive of a bullish continuation, with some follow trough around current levels pointing for an extension up to 1.7080/90 price zone."
