A bullish breakout above the previous consolidation zone between 1.2400 and 1.2800 was performed on July 15 (shown on the weekly chart).

A significant bearish rejection was observed around 1.3450. Hence, another consolidation range was established from 1.3450 down to 1.2800.

On December 7, a bullish breakout above 1.3450 (the upper limit of the recent consolidation range) enhanced the bullish side of the market. Hence, a bullish visit to the resistance level of 1.4120 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) was executed.

Bullish persistence above 1.4150 enhanced the bullish side of the market towards 1.4650 (141.4% Fibonacci expansion) where an evident bearish rejection was expected (bearish engulfing weekly candlestick).

The recent bullish recovery was manifested around the level of 1.3750. That is why the recent bullish pullback took place towards 1.4000 during the last week.

The level of 1.4120 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) remains a significant key-level to be watched for further price reactions.

It may offer a valid sell entry if a bullish pullback takes place above 1.3950, which is a low possibility after the depicted lower high was expressed at 1.3970.

On the other hand, the zone of 1.3370-1.3400 remains a significant support zone to be watched for a valid buy entry when the current bearish momentum extends below the prominent weekly support level of 1.3600.

Trading recommendations:

Conservative traders should wait for the current bearish pullback towards the zone of 1.3370-1.3400 for a valid buy entry. S/L should be located below 1.3320.
