Above the 1.6397 level, its Mar 22’2011 high is required to bring the pair out of its range and then target the 1.6455 level followed by the 1.6720 level. On the downside, a trade below the 1.5964/35 levels will have   to invalidate its present bullishness.

This will resume its weakness started from the 1.6397 level and then aim at the 1.5819 level, its Jan 19’2011 low. Further down, support lies at the 1.5700 level.
