Meanwhile, the relative strength index is negatively oriented. The first target to the downside is set at the horizontal support and overlap at 157.20. A breakout below this level would open the way to further weakness toward 156.50.
The pair is trading below its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a lower range as long as it remains below the pivot point. Short positions are recommended with the first target at 157.20.
