Higher Timeframes

No significant changes over the past 24 hours. Consolidation continues, so uncertainty persists. The daily short-term trend has moved closer to the price chart. Today, it can be found at 1.0680, practically within the consolidation zone. In case of upward movement, the next resistances are located around 1.0732-56 (daily + weekly Fibonacci Kijuns). If the bears manage to leave the consolidation zone by breaking the current support level (1.0611), then traders will focus on the support of the lower boundary of the weekly cloud.

H4 – H1

The uncertainty found in higher time frames causes the pair to revolve around the weekly long-term trend (1.0649). Trading above this mark increases the chances of an upward movement, with the classic Pivot levels serving as reference points for the intraday rise (1.0674 – 1.0696 – 1.0720). A breakout (1.0649) and trading below this mark could create a favorable environment for the bears. In case the pair falls, the bears will focus on breaking through the support levels of the classic Pivot points (1.0628 – 1.0604 – 1.0582).

H4 – H1

The bears have the advantage on the lower time frames, but the pair is in a corrective territory and has settled above the central Pivot level of the day (1.2345). If the bears become active and the corrective phase ends, traders may focus on the support levels of the classic Pivot points, which are located at 1.2299 – 1.2252 – 1.2206. If the pair corrects higher, the bulls may push the price to the key level that is responsible for the current balance of forces, the weekly long-term trend (1.2417), and today, the intermediate resistance on this path may be R1 (1.2392).
