Looking at the daily chart we notice on July 11 USD/TRY rebounded from the boundary of the current trading zone 5.655 – 5.825 however, the pair U-turned on the following day before reaching the high end, reflecting the buyer’s weakness to keep rallying the price.

Therefore, a close below the low-end of this zone may press the price lower towards 5.457 nonetheless, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) need to be kept in focus.

In turn, any failure to close below the low- end may send the price towards the high-end although, the daily resistance zone between 5.779 up to 5.787 should be watched closely. See the chart to find out about the key points in a further bullish scenario.
