) -- The EUR-USD pair looks to strengthen further after rallying strongly and reversing its one-day losses on Monday.

This development now leaves EUR targeting the Jan. 3 high of 1.3074, with a cut through there allowing the pair to push further higher toward the Dec. 21 high of 1.3197 level. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength.

On the downside, if its present recovery fails, the risk will be for EUR to restart its broader medium term downtrend by breaking the 1.2624 level. This will set the stage for further declines toward the August 2010 low of 1.2587. Further down, support stands at the 1.2479 level.

All in all, EUR continues to retain its corrective recovery tone as it looks to strengthen further.
