Down 0.8 percent on the week, support at $1.1237-1.1281—made up of a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $1.1281 and a 1.618% Fibonacci projection from $1.1237—has been overthrown.
This throws light on Quasimodo support as far south as $1.0778 and introduces a bearish environment. On top of this, technicians will acknowledge the pair took out 2nd November low (2020) at $1.1603. This suggests the beginnings of a primary downtrend on the weekly timeframe, reinforced on the back of the monthly timeframe trending lower since mid-2008.
Quasimodo support at $1.1213 (positioned beneath the weekly timeframe’s Fibonacci structure) has come under fire. Establishing a decisive close beneath the latter not only helps validate the bearish environment brewing on the weekly timeframe, but also exposes limited support on the daily timeframe until $1.0991 (not visible on the screen).
In terms of the relative strength index (RSI), the indicator’s value is exploring oversold territory and threatening a move to support from 21.87. While the oversold region can prompt a bullish phase, downward trending situations can have the indicator remain within the area for prolonged periods.

19th June (2020) low coming in from $1.1168 pulls in potential support, should sellers maintain their current setting beneath $1.1215.
The view out of the H1 chart has buyers and sellers squaring off around the lower side of $1.12, following a break lower in early US hours on Wednesday.
$1.1265-1.1273 supply demands attention upstream, sheltered beneath supply at $1.1307-1.1283.
The $1.1113-1.1140 decision point is seen to the downside. Though do be aware sentiment clearly favours sellers right now and may discourage buying from the decision point.
