Waiting for comments

The pair is still above 102.00, but its positions look very fragile, especially on the back of practically empty calendar. However, the USD still has the chances to get a new surge of demand provided scheduled for release this week FOMC minutes will be more aggressive than usual. Any hints from monetary authorities on stronger economic recovery in store may become another reason to buy the pair. It did try to resume the rise on the news about revised forecasts from Goldman, and may show some new attempts soon. The initial target to the upside may lie at 102.41 resistance level.
