At present, the pair is trading with a slightly downside bias, ahead of UK’s inflation report hearings to be held later today. Moreover, the MACD is placed in its negative territory, further verifying the above view.
Key support is located at the 1.2965 level, followed by the 1.2935 and 1.2900 levels. A clear breach below the latter might lead to further negativity in the pair. On the contrary, immediate resistance is located at the 1.3015 level, followed by the 1.3040 and 1.3075 levels.
