  • USD/INR remains mildly positive despite the latest pullback.
  • 100-day EMA, the bearish formation’s support becomes the tough nut to crack for sellers.
  • The pattern’s resistance line, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement offers the key upside barriers.

USD/INR registers minor gains of around 0.13% while taking the bids to 71.43 amid the initial Indian session on Tuesday. The pair portrays a bearish technical pattern on the daily chart.

With the pair’s repeated failures to take-out 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of its December 11, 2019, to January 08, 2020 upside, odds are high for its gradual declines to 71.22/20 support confluence including 100-day EMA and the bearish formation’ support.

However, the pair’s declines below 71.20 on a daily closing basis will trigger a fresh downside to the yearly bottom surrounding 70.60 and then to December month lows near 70.30.

Meanwhile, an upside clearance of 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, at 71.70, could push the pair towards the 72.00 resistance confluence including the pattern’s resistance and 23.6% Fibonacci retracement.

It’s worth mentioning that the pair’s ability to cross 72.00 defies the downside favoring pattern and will push the quote towards January month top close to 72.60.
