In doing so, the quote backs the repeated bounces off 100-SMA, as well as price-positive Momentum, to direct USD/TRY buyers toward a horizontal area comprising multiple tops from late April, around 8.4400.

While the pair’s run-up beyond 8.4400 needs a strong push, a clear breakout won’t hesitate to challenge the monthly high, also the highest since November 2020, around 8.5150.

Meanwhile, a confluence of 100-SMA and an ascending support line from mid-April, near 8.3550, becomes crucial support for USD/TRY sellers to watch during the quote’s pullback moves.

Also acting as important support is the previous week’s low near 8.2960, a break of which will challenge the monthly low of 8.2160.
