Haresh Menghani, Analyst at FXStreet explains,

“Technically, a follow-through weakness below the 1.2250-40 immediate support area is likely to accelerate the fall towards the 1.2200 key level, which has been offering strong support since mid-January. A convincing drop below the mentioned support would mark a bearish break below 2-1/2-month-old trading range and confirm that the pair might have topped out in the near-term.”

“On the flip side, sustained move back above the 1.2300 handle could get extended back towards the 1.2345-50 supply zone, above which the pair could break through the 1.2400 handle and head towards retesting the 1.2475 strong hurdle en-route the key 1.2500 psychological mark,”

Haresh adds.
