Daily chart

As seen above, the bounce from the 200-day MA has trapped the bears on the wrong side of the market.  

The pair had closed at 0.6768 last Wednesday, confirming a downside break of the three-month narrowing price range. The breakdown, however, has failed, and that seems to have invited strong bullish pressure.  

Hourly chart

The higher highs and higher lows on the hourly chart and the bullish crossover of the 50- and 200-hour moving averages (MAs) indicate the path of least resistance is to the higher side.
