The Euro retreated below support at $1.26, indicating a test of the 2010 low at $1.19/$1.20. Breach of the rising trendline on 63-day Twiggs Momentum would strengthen the bear signal.

Euro/US Dollar

Pound Sterling is testing resistance at $1.58 against the greenback. Respect would indicate another test of primary support at $1.52. A 63-day Twiggs Momentum peak below zero would warn of a primary down-trend.

Against the Euro, Pound Sterling is in an accelerating up-trend. The gap between the recent low at €1.225 and the previous peak at €1.215 suggests strong buying pressure — as does 63-day Twiggs Momentum oscillating high above zero.

Canada's Loonie is strengthening against the Aussie Dollar. Long-term bullish divergence on 63-day Twiggs Momentum warns of reversal to a primary up-trend. Breakout above parity would confirm.

Short retracement suggests that the Aussie Dollar is, in turn, strengthening against the greenback on the Daily chart. Breakout above $1.02 (and the descending trendline) would indicate that a bottom is forming. Recovery of 63-day Twiggs Momentum above zero would suggest a primary up-trend.

Training was a time where resolutions made in the enthusiasm of an inspired moment were put to personal test.
