Bulls also showed signs of stall on Wednesday’s Doji candle, with today’s fresh weakness being on track to complete reversal pattern on daily chart.

Weaker momentum and south-turning stochastic and RSI support scenario, which would require close below 0.90 level as initial negative signal.

Extension below 20DMA (0.8971) and 30DMA (0.8948) is needed to confirm reversal and shift focus lower.

Conversely, holding above 0.90 handle would keep bullish bias intact, with narrow consolidation seen preceding fresh attempts higher.

Res: 0.9009; 0.9038; 0.9050; 0.9087
Sup: 0.8971; 0.8948; 0.8920; 0.8872
