A look at shorter-term positioning on the four-hour chart shows prices consolidating losses in the 0.6726-67 area. Still, seeing clear follow-through on the break of rising trend support guiding the upswing from lows from set at the beginning of the year suggests the longer-term down trend has resumed.

From here, a move below the 0.6726 opens the door for a test of the next layer of support in the0.6686-0.6713 area. A daily close below that sets the stage for a decline to revisit zone 0.6592-0.6619, where the last down leg started in early December out of steam.
