Bulls and Bears are continuing their fight within the consolidation zone around 1.265. Price managed to dip below the trendline for a while yesterday due to the weakening of USD during US trading hours, but bulls pulled price back up above the line once more, showing their grit.

As we approach the end of May which happens to be the end of the week, volatility may be higher due to the thinner liquidity, as such traders may wish to see if any potential trends hinted by the end of tonight has proper follow through the next week.
