Prices moved lower as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. The pair found interim support in the 1.2855-1.2902 area, with a bounce from here seeing initial resistance at the underside of a rising trend line set from the November 13 low (1.3077). This boundary is reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from mid-September (now at 1.3093). A push above that aims for the December 5 high at 1.3126. Alternatively, a drop below support exposes the 38.2% Fib at 1.2737. Our short entry order at 1.2978 has been triggered.
