We note that the daily RSI has not confirmed the new low and directly below here lies Fibonacci support at 1.2918 (50% retracement of the move up from 2016) and it is possible that we will see some profit taking here. Below 1.2918 would be treated as the break down point to 1.2580, the 61.8% retracement from 2016″.
