The pair now needs a successful break of multiple resistance-lines ranged from mid-September, around 1.0780/85 to aim for 1.0800 and September month high of 1.0852.

Meanwhile, a downside break below 1.0730 support-joint including 200-bar Simple Moving Average (SMA) and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of August-September rise could drag prices to the one-week-old ascending trend line of 1.0695.

Also, pair’s declines below 1.0695 can well aim for 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.0650 and the 1.0630 support level.
