Things got quieter in the American afternoon, with the pair being driven higher by EUR demand. Technically, the 1 hour chart shows that the pair has been pretty much consolidating between its 100 and 200 SMAs, with the shortest offering an immediate resistance at 126.15. In the same chart, the technical indicators hover around their mid-lines, diverging from each other and therefore unable to offer clear directional clues. In the 4 hours chart, a slightly positive tone prevails, as the technical indicators present limited bullish slopes above their mid-lines, although the price remains below a mild bearish 200 SMA, in where selling interest has been containing rallies for the past two weeks."
