4-hour chart

As seen above, the pair defended the key Fib level with long-tailed doji candles – a sign of dip demand. So far, however, the bounce has been shallow.  

That said, a bearish reversal on the 4-hour chart would be confirmed if and when the pair finds acceptance under 147.66. That would expose the support at 144.73 – trendline connecting the Jan. 4 and Feb. 15 lows. Also note, that the rising trendline support would shift to 145.00 and above in the next few days.
