Key quotes

“With short-term momentum waning, further near-term sideways trading is likely at first. Post this consolidation, we remain biased lower over the medium-term, as a large ‘head and shoulders’ top still in place.”

“Support is seen initially at 1.2700/1.2699, then back at 1.2688, removal of which should see a move back to the 78.6% retracement of the 2017/2020 surge at 1.2620, where we would expect to see fresh buyers at first.”

“Resistance moves initially to 1.2772, then 1.2790/93, where we would expect a first attempt to hold. Beyond here can see a move back to 1.2829/33, removal of which could see a move back to 1.2874/81, where we expect to see another attempt to cap.”
