The currency pair is presently stranded between SMAs. The 50-hour simple moving average is providing resistance for the rate at 1.3289, while the 100-hour moving average is providing support at 1.3267.
Technical indicators demonstrate that the currency exchange rate will continue moving in a junior ascending channel within this session.
