FXStreet´s own Analyst, Haresh Menghani writes: “It would be prudent to wait for a sustained move beyond the mentioned barrier before traders start positioning for any further up-move towards reclaiming the 1.1400 round figure mark with some intermediate resistance near 61.8% Fibo. level, around mid-1.1300s.”

“On the flip side, weakness below the 1.1290-80 region (38.2% Fibo. level) now seems to find decent support near the lower end of the trend-channel, currently near the 1.1265 region, which if broken might turn the pair vulnerable to slide further below 23.6% Fibo. level, around the 1.1245 area, towards challenging the 1.1200 round figure mark,” Haresh adds.
