• The pair struggled to capitalize on its intraday bounce from over six-week lows and oscillated in a narrow trading band around the 110.00 handle through the early North-American session.
• Given last week’s bearish break below 2-1/2-month-old ascending trend-line, the attempted recovery move might still be categorized as corrective amid oversold conditions on the 4-hourly chart.
• Meanwhile, bearish technical indicators on the daily chart support prospects for an extension of the depreciating and will be reaffirmed on a sustained break below the 109.70-60 support zone.
• Below the mentioned region, the pair is likely to accelerate the fall further towards 109.35 support before eventually dropping to test the 109.00 round figure mark and 108.75 horizontal level.
