Drilling down to the four hour chart; the presence of a Dragonfly Doji near 1.3750 helped foreshadow the bounce towards 1.3805 in recent trading. A break above the notable resistance level coupled with the absence of a bearish reversal signal may open an advance towards 1.3840/50.

Finally, taking a look at some broader context provided the weekly chart; the Evening Star formation that has emerged shy of the key 1.4000 is a notable warning signal of further declines ahead. The pattern has received confirmation from a successive down week which raises the likelihood of an eventual correction towards the 1.3480 support level.
