It was approached on January 28, and, after an initial lackluster response to the BOJ's move, returned to lower end of its $1.08-$1.10 trading range that has confined the bulk of the activity over the past two months. That Depending on exactly how you draw it, there is a trend line off the Dec ECB meeting low (~$1.0525) and off the Jan 5 low that catches the Jan 21, 22, and 25 lows. Trendline now looks to be just above $1.08.

The recent low was set near $1.0775, and $1.0710 area was seen earlier in January. These are the initial targets. Before the ECB disappointment in December, the euro was approaching $1.05.

    There is a reasonable chance that the easing that was widely anticipated then will, for all practical purposes be delivered in two installments, one in December and the other in March. This would suggest, barring a poor US employment report, that the euro is likely return to the $1.05 area. "
