The pice gap down

The EUR/USD market gaped up and found resistance at the market low from January 2012 at 1.2625 (pink line). Market price slightly penetrated (3) the high from the 24th of May (stop fishing) at 1.2620 before market price turned around.

On the hourly chart, the circled consolidation during the Asian session (2), the 20 SMA (hourly-purple line),  daily R1 plus the 200 MA on the 5 min chart held the market for a while before EUR/USD broke down at 2 p.m. (5).

Market respected (hourly close at) the support level of the red line (market low from May 23 on the hourly chart), the green trend line at 1.2545 (hourly chart) (4) and also the 61.80 %  Fibonacci Retracement, 100 % Fibonacci extension, the daily pivot point at this support zone (red circle) before market price went down a bit further immediately in the beginning of the new trading hour at 3 p.m. (Breakout Timing). However, market price seems to consolidate around this key support level and might calm down on today's US Memorial day.

Friday's close at around 1.2518 (Market gap close) and the surrounding consolidation (1) might provide some further support.
