• The pair extended this week’s sharp retracement slide near five-month tops and has been trending lower alongside a short-term descending trend-channel formation on the 1-hourly chart.
• Bullish rejection near the 0.7400 handle and failure ahead of the very important 200-day SMA continues to prompt some heavy long-unwinding pressure for the third consecutive session.
• Technical indicators on 1-hourly/4-hourly charts are already pointing to slightly near-term oversold conditions but have just started gaining negative momentum on the daily chart.
• The pair has now dropped to over one-week lows and the set-up points to a continuation of the downfall, though warrant some near-term consolidation before the next leg lower.
