Haresh Menghani, Analyst at FXStreet explains,

“any meaningful retracement is likely to find immediate support near the 1.1625-20 region and is closely followed by the 1.1600 handle, below which the pair is likely to head back towards challenging the key 1.1500 psychological mark with some intermediate support near the 1.1535 area. 

Alternatively, a convincing move beyond the 1.1700 handle would negate near-term bearish bias and trigger a fresh bout of short-covering move, which could lift the pair initially towards 1.1740-45 supply zone en-route its next major hurdle near the 1.1785-90 region.”
