  • In addition to 38.2% FIbo, the horizontal line connecting late-January lows to the recent lows also highlights 0.9900 round-figure for sellers.
  • 1.0025/30 and 1.0070 are likely resistances to watch past-1.0000 breakout.

  • While a week-long descending trend-line caps immediate advances at 0.9930, a fortnight old downward sloping resistance-line increases the importance of 0.9960 barrier to the north.
