Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Friday USD/TRY rallied eying a test of the high end of current trading zone 5.6550 – 5.8250.

Thus, a close above the high end of the zone could push USDTRY towards 5.9617. Further close above this may see the price trading even higher towards 6.1321. That said, buyers need to pay a close attention to the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in).

On the other hand, any failure to close above the high end of the zone, could change the pair’s course sending it back towards the low end. Further close below the low end may cause more bearishness towards 5.4635. Although, the weekly support area and levels marked on the chart should be kept in focus.
