Strategy: Flat

Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance at a falling trend line set from the June 4 high, hinting a move lower is ahead. Initial support lines up at 0.9743, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 38.2% level at 0.9654. Trend line resistance is now at 0.9870. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering a trade at current levels with prices so close to support and we will stand aside for now.
