Appreciation above the next resistance level at 1.3404 (R1) might establish new leg of uptrend formation and enable higher targets at 1.3434 (R2) and 1.346 (R3). Downwards scenario: Current market structure remains consolidative and easing below the support level at 1.3336 (S1) is likely scenario for today. Our targets located at 1.3307 (S2) and 1.3280 (S3) in perspective.

    OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
    TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration
    TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
    IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

    Upwards scenario: We are not expecting significant price deviation today, though risk of positive tone establishment is seen above the next resistance level at 89.30 (R1). Any penetration above this level would put in focus higher targets at 89.54 (R2) and 89.79 (R3). Downwards scenario: We suspect that the market might extend short term losses below the fresh low formed today. Easing below our support at 88.60 (S1) would suggest next targets at 88.36 (S3) and 88.10 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 89.30, 89.54, 89.79
    Support Levels: 88.60, 88.36, 88.10
