The cross is now sustaining its fall below 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level and 200-hour SMA, while technical indicators on the mentioned chart are also holding deep in the bearish territory.

The set-up now seems to suggest that bears are likely to maintain their dominant position and any attempted rebound, led by today’s UK manufacturing PMI, is likely to get sold into.
