Dollar losses ground ahead of the US opening, with gold strongly up and indexes erasing early loses. Not much reason behind latest movement, as market has been quite slow since early opening.

Anyway, the EUR/USD hourly chart shows price fully filled the weekly opening gap, yet stalled around 1.2940, immediate resistance level. Indicators in the mentioned time frame surged to positive territory, yet remain flat, showing not enough upward momentum. The rally may extend near 1.2970 if dollar remains under pressure, yet more gains seem unlikely at the time being.
Support levels: 1.2910 1.2880 1.2845
Resistance levels: 1.2940 1.2970 1.3000
