On the 5 min chart we see that EUR/USD formed a typical 3 wave consolidation pattern at the price level of the weekly R1 (between 1-2 p.m.) before the Euro resumed it's uptrend terminating at the resistance zone. The Euro reversed sharply and took out the recent striking low at 1.2562.
The recent consolidation from the beginning of today's European session (8 a.m. - 10 a.m.-not shown) provided some support and led to a pause of the sudden price drop before market headed up again at 4:35 p.m. after price reached the 10 SMA on the 4 hour chart (not shown). The Euro formed a kind of inverted Head & Shoulder (3,4,5), which got triggered and market moved up to the consolidation pattern at today's high (6).
