Buyers currently target January 15 high near 1.0460 amid bullish MACD whereas the previous month top surrounding 1.0500 will lure the bulls afterward.

In a case where buyers manage to dominate past-1.0500, 200-day SMA on the daily chart, around 1.0550 will be in focus.

On the downside, the pair’s weakness below the resistance-turned-support line, near 1.0400, could recall 1.0370 support back to the chart.

Though an upward sloping trend line since January 29, at 1.0350, could challenge the bears past-1.0370, if not then January month’s bottom of 1.0290 may return to the charts.
