Daily line chart

As seen above, the pair is trapped in a narrowing price range since Dec. 4.  

A break above the upper edge of the triangle, currently at 0.6909, would signal a resumption of the rally from the October low of 0.6424 and could yield a rally to the psychological hurdle of 0.70.  

A violation of the lower edge, currently at 0.6769, could yield a pullback to 0.6650-0.66.  

It is worth noting that a prolonged period of consolidation often paves way for a violent move.  So, the pair may witness a near 90-degree move post-breakout or breakdown.
