Lee, analyst at "The figure has prompted the formation of a triple top technical pattern, indicative of a bearish drop to initial support at 0.9991. The level acts as the base for short term consolidation. As such, a subsequent downside violation would open scope for a drop to 0.9956 50% fib support from the 0.9879-1.0035 bullish wave".
