The next key resistance is near the 1.2780 level. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.2806 high to 1.2687 low. A successful close above the 1.2780 and 1.2800 resistance levels might start a steady rise.

The next major resistance is near the 1.2850 level, above which the pair might revisit 1.2920. Conversely, the pair might continue to move down below the 1.2740 support.
