Trend: Bearish

Relevant Key Levels: Resistance 1.2820-70, 1.2770, 1.2580, 1.2380 to 1.2430. Support 1.1990.

Price Action: Tight Inside Bar Forms (Will be bearish setup if prices break down). Bearish Fakey Pattern triggers late last week (Discussed in prior commentary). A bearish pin bar formed several weeks ago just above current prices.
