The Euro appears to be vulnerable to deeper losses against the US Dollar after a break below near-term chart support opened the way below the 1.22 figure. Another brief foray to the upside proved fruitless, with the single currency rejected on a test of trend line resistance capping gains since mid-February yet again.

A break below the March 9 lowat 1.2273 has exposed the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2173. A further breach below that confirmed on a daily closing basis targets the 1.2055-70 area (50% level, August 29 high). Alternatively, a move back above 1.2273 aims for a retest of trend line resistance, now at 1.2374

The second half of a short EUR/USD position from 1.2407 remains in play after initial profit was booked last week., looking to capture any further weakness. Scaling up exposure seems ill-advised as the FOMC rate decision looms ahead however. The stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 1.2446.
