Still in range, waiting for U.S. Payrolls, pair remains slightly bullish as still above 20 SMA, yet losing upside momentum after this consolidation stage. Trapped under the 61.8% of the last daily fall, pair needs to break above 1.4930 to extend the upside, while clear break under 1.4810 could trigger selling rallies. Pair today likely to follow U.S. stocks.

Consolidating under 1.6600, pair remains printing higher highs, yet no clear signs come form hourly indicators. Bigger time frames one also remain flat, yet with a slightly bullish perspective for next hours. Pair needs to move above the 1.6640 area, to extend the upside close to 1.6690.
