  • USD/INR bounces off 21-day EMA, clings to 23.6% Fibonacci retracement even after breaking four-week-old support-line.
  • Sellers can look for 71.30 on the break below the near-term moving average.

Despite breaking a month-old support-line, USD/INR fails to slip below the 21-day exponential moving average (EMA) as it takes the rounds to 71.62 ahead of Monday’s European open.

Adding to the pair’s immediate support is 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of July-September upside, at 71.60, a break of which will test 21-day EMA level of 71.47.

In a case where prices slip below 71.47 on a daily closing basis, August 13 low near 71.30 and 50% Fibonacci retracement level close to 70.50/45 will flash on sellers’ radar.

Alternatively, an upside clearance of 72.30 enables the pair to again head for 73.00 with the latest high surrounding 72.65 likely being an intermediate halt.
