According to the technical analysts at ICN.com, “The downside momentum is more obvious now and is supported by stability below a 88.6% correction at 0.9870. It is worth noting that instability below this level might extend the downside move.”
ICN.com analysts isolate the next supports at 0.9825, 0.9800, and finally 0.9750. On the ascension, a breach of the 0.9870 threshold will open the door towards further resistances at 0.9900 and eventually 0.9935.
