   “¢   The pair finally broke down of its late Asian session consolidation phase and retreated farther from Friday’s near two-month tops, and the 112.00 handle, to test 50-hour SMA.

   “¢   The prevalent risk-off mood, led by renewed US-China trade war fears, coupled with some USD selling were seen as key factors behind the latest leg of fall in the last hour.  

   “¢   Despite a combination of negative factors, the downfall remained rather limited and the momentum, so far, has been confined within Friday’s broader trading range.

   “¢   Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have started losing positive momentum and thus, increase prospects for some additional intraday weakness amid escalating trade tensions.

   “¢   However, a convincing move beyond 112.15 supply zone might negate any negative outlook and should pave the way for an extension of the last week’s positive momentum.
