Prior analysis

In the above daily chart, the price was forecasted to complete at least a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the M-formation’s bearish impulse. 

Current market

At this juncture, the pair can firmly be on the bear’s watchlist for a prolonged deceleration of the correction as the price meets a confluence of the 38.2% Fibo, structure and the 10-day moving average. 

While higher grounds are still not out of the question, a downside extension would be expected to reach in the region of at least 1.8580 as a measured Fibonacci target. 

4-hour chart

The 4-hour chart offers a bearish environment with MACD below zero.

The price now needs to break out below the 10-moving average and the rising trendline support that would be expected to act as resistance on a subsequent restest of the structure.
