Key quotes

“With the daily RSI now in overbought territory, we are watching for signs of a top. With this in mind, support is seen initially at 0.6332/27, beneath which would now see a small intraday top complete.” 

“Furthermore, a close today below 0.6375 would also complete a ‘bearish engulfing’ candlestick reversal to add weight to the view that the corrective rebound may now be over.”

“Next supports would then be seen at 0.6221/20, ahead of 0.6195, removal of which would potentially see a more important top established and add pressure for a more important move lower.” 

“A closing break above 0.6451 and then the potential 2020 downtrend at 0.6494 would instead turn the short -term risk to the upside to see a move back to the 200-day average and 78.6% retracement at 0.6706/21.”
