The high today reached between those levels at 1.27657 and backed off.  We currently trade at 1.2725. That is down -13 pips on the day now (closed at 1.2734 on Friday).
 
The 1.27579-1.2771 area is home to swing levels 
Drilling to the hourly chart, the pair is currently moving below the 1.2727 level. Recall from last week, there has been a number of swing levels at the area.  Stay below and then move below the 38.2-50% of the move up from Friday's low at 1.27037-183 (correction zone) and the bears take more control.  The 61.8% retracement at 1.2689 and the rising 100 hour MA at 1.26608 (blue line) would be other downside targets (see hourly chart below)

On a move higher getting back above 1.27418-471 and then the high swing area from the daily at 1.27579-71 would be targets to get and stay above....

The 1.27037-183 are targets on the downside om more weakness.
