The US Dollar is trading higher versus the Chinese Yuan in offshore trade, as the pair currently sits above prior support at 6.6860.
As we mentioned in the last report, the pair found support above the last short term swing high (~6.6700), and formed a “bullish engulfing bar”, suggesting another potential attempt for the key 6.7000 handle.
Indeed, the pair is trading in proximity to that key level, after pivoting around 6.6860, but real bullish conviction might require a break and a hold above the 6.7 handle.
A move lower may shift focus to 6.6500 as a major line of defense in the near term, with the 6.6700 level offering potential interim support.
