Prices bounced from support at 1.2831, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, as expected after putting a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. The bulls now aim to challenge resistance at a falling trend line established from May 2011, now at 1.3103. A break above that initially targets 1.3283. Alternatively, a reversal through support initially targets the 38.2% Fib (1.2620). Current positioning doesn’t offer an actionable trade setup and we will stand side for now.
