  • Daily Close Above Nearby Resistance To Open 1.1040

A similar narrative to the daily is evident on the four hour timeframe after a Bearish Engulfing formation failed to find validation from an ensuing down-period. This casts doubt on a potential correction for the pair over the session ahead. A retreat below the 1.0870 floor would be required to shift the immediate risk to the downside.
