If the quote remains strong above 7.14, bulls will target 7.2000 mark during further increase.

On the downside, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 7.0292 and 21-day EMA level of 6.9955 can entertain short-term sellers in the case of a pullback.

However, pair’s decline below 6.9955 highlights the importance of 6.9626/06 area comprising 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and June month top.
