Daily techs maintain strong bullish momentum and underpin the action, as the pair is on track for strong weekly gains (1.4% until now) and formation of bullish engulfing pattern on weekly chart that would generate strong bullish signal for further advance. Broken 108 barrier marks initial support, with 20DMA (107.65) expected to contain dips and keep bulls in play. The outcome of top-level US/China trade talks is expected to play key role in pair's near-term action.
