  • USD/CNH pulls back after China’s Caixin Manufacturing PMI surged to a five-month high.
  • A downside break of 7.1510 will confirm short-term bearish formation.

With China’s August month Caixin Manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) surging to a five-month high of 50.4, also beating 49.8 forecast, USD/CNH declines to 7.1685 amid initial Asian trading on Monday.

Sellers await entry on the break of three-week-old rising support-line, at 7.1510, in order to confirm the bearish formation indicating further downside to 7.0000 round-figure. However, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of late-July to August upswing, at 7.0632 may offer an intermediate halt during the downpour.

In a case where prices keep trailing 7.0632, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 6.9887 and 6.9150 can please bears.

On the upside, the latest high of 7.1838 and formation resistance close to 7.2000 will keep exerting downside pressure on prices.
