Prices are testing support at 1.5996, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level, with a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern hinting an upswing is ahead. Near-term falling trend line resistance is at 1.6135. A push above this boundary broadly clears the way for another challenge of the 1.63 figure. Alternatively, a break below support exposes the 50% retracement at 1.5899.
