COMMENTARY: Euro-dollar rises back above the former Jul 2012 support line, now
at 1.2873, but already tested territory below here. The pair bounced from the
23.6% retracement of 1.3243-1.2797, formerly initial res at 1.2902, but
euro-dollar nudged above here. If bulls fail to break above we expect the pair
will turn lower once more, initial support at 1.2843/47, the lows of May 15 and
16. Further support at 1.2775/97, the H&S neckline on weekly chart and May 17 low.
