- Dragonfly Doji On The Daily Suggests Indecision
- H4 Demonstrates Reluctance From The Bulls Near 116.80

The four hour chart paints a similar picture to the daily. A medley of Dojis on the intraday timeframe suggest a reluctance from the bulls to push the pair above the 116.80 barrier. Yet a lack of bearish reversal patterns casts doubt on a potential pullback over the session ahead.
