The rate has plunged in the last hours and looks determined to hit new lows till the end of the day, has managed to fall below the 1.0600 psychological level, signalling that the sellers are in full control on the short term. Price has found strong resistance right below the upper median line (UML) of the major descending pitchfork, technically should drop deeper after the false breakout above the upper median line (UML). The pair has failed once again to reach the sliding parallel line (descending dotted line), could be attracted by the confluence area formed at the intersection between the 1.0521 and the first warning line (wl1) of the ascending pitchfork.
