Prices bounced from support at a rising trend line set from the June 1 low after completing a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern and now challenge a downward-sloping barrier set from mid-September (1.6048). A break above that initially exposes 1.6145. Alternatively, a move lower through minor supports at 1.6003 and 1.5951 aims to test the trend line (now at 1.5898) anew.
