Looking at the daily chart, we notice Yesterday USD/TRY rallied to a higher trading zone 5.8250 – 5.9617 looking for a test of the high end of it contingent on clearing the weekly area marked on the chart (zoomed in) .

Hence, a close above the high end could see USDTRY trading even higher towards 6.1321. However, the weekly resistance area and level underscored on the chart should be kept in focus.

That said, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone could reverse the price’s direction sending it towards the low end of the zone. Further close below the low end could press USDTRY towards 5.6550. In that scenario, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.
