   “¢   After an initial dip to sub-1.3100 level, the pair regained positive traction and has now climbed back closer to overnight swing high, above mid-1.3100s.

   “¢   The pair is currently testing an immediate resistance marked by 100-hour SMA hurdle, which had been acting as an important support over the past two weeks.
