In the technical front, Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at, notes: “The hourly chart shows extreme oversold levels, yet attempts of recovery found resistance in the 120.40 price zone, and with the pair below the 120.00 mark, I won’t be expecting much gains today, yet on contrary, spikes will likely provide selling opportunities,” she suggests, adding: “The 4 hours chart shows a strongly bearish bias, and a retest of the lows around 118.70 seem likely for today,” the analyst concludes.

Valeria sees support levels at: 119.45, 119.00 and 118.70, while resistance levels at: 120.40, 120.90 and 121.50.
