• The pair, this week, repeatedly failed to make it through a short-term descending trend-line resistance, extending from 14-month tops set on July 12.
• Today's rejection from 100-hour SMA, leading to a subsequent fall below 200-hour and 50-day SMA, prompted some aggressive long-unwinding/fresh selling pressure.
• The ongoing downfall confirms a near-term bearish breakdown, albeit oversold technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart could be the only factor helping limit deeper losses.
