   “¢   The pair caught some fresh bids on Thursday and built on the overnight goodish bounce from the 111.00 neighbourhood, a support marked by 50% Fibo. level of the 109.71-112.40 up-move.

   “¢   Alternatively, a decisive break below the 111.00 round figure mark will negate the constructive outlook and turn the pair vulnerable to accelerate the slide towards 61.8% Fibo. near the 110.70 region.
