The currency pair has found strong support and now is approaching the outside sliding parallel line (descending dotted line), could drop much deeper if will fail to jump above the mentioned dynamic resistance (support has turned into support). The sell-off has invalidated the potential Inverse Head and Shoulders pattern, the corrective phase was natural after the false breakout above the warning line (WL1) and after the failure to stabilize inside the ascending pitchfork's body. Could still drop to reach the confluence area formed by the UML with the warning line (wl1), we could have a great buying opportunity from there if the rate will be rejected.
