Looking at the daily chart we notice yesterday USD/TRY moved to the higher trading zone 5.6550 – 5.8250. Currently, the price eyes a test of the high end of this zone.

Thus, a close above the high end may cause a rally towards 5.9617. Nonetheless, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (Zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone could press USDTRY towards the low end. Further close below the low end, could mean more bearishness towards 5.4635. The weekly support levels and area marked on the chart need to be watched along the way.
