Haresh Menghani explains,

“A clear break through the mentioned (1.2440) hurdle would mark a fresh break out of a bullish flag chart pattern and should assist the pair to resume with its prior appreciating move. Momentum beyond the trend-channel resistance is likely to accelerate the up-move back towards the 1.25 handle en-route multi-year highs hurdle near the 1.2535-40 region.”

“Alternatively, a sustained weakness back below the 1.2400-1.2390 region might drag the pair towards retesting the trend-channel support, currently near the 1.2320 region. A follow-through selling pressure might now turn the pair vulnerable to break below the 1.2300 handle and head towards its next support near the 1.2265 horizontal level,”

Haresh adds.
