EURUSD moves away from 100 hour MA

Posted: 19 Dec 2011 07:52 AM PST

The EURUSD has moved below the 1.3024 level which is the 100 hour MA.  The move below this level opens the door for a test of the 1.3002. This level was the low from earlier today and also a low level from Friday.  Below, the 1.2988 level is trendline support that has 3 separate tests over the last 4 trading days.  I would expect to see intraday dip buyers against each levels as quiet holiday trading is most likely.
