Prices are retesting the top of a Descending Triangle chart pattern established from late July (1.0490), a barrier reinforced by the underside of a Rising Wedge chart pattern completed on November 14 (1.0507). A break higher targets 1.0578. Initial support lines up at 1.0367, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a drop below that exposing the 1.0136-81 area. We continue to hold short.
