Key quotes

“Although the break above the 2020 downtrend is corning, we ideally look for 0.6156/80 to cap further and see an extension of the downside move to maintain the rangebound environment. With this in mind, support is seen initially at 0.6063, below which would turn the risks back lower within the range, with the next level at0 .6034, before the more important 0.5925/06, where we would expect to see a temporary floor.”

“Above the key 0.6156/80 highs would turn the spotlight back to the ‘neckline’ to the 2019/2020 ‘triangle’ at 0.6204/16, where we would be alert to a fresh top given its importance.”
