According to Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at Fxstreet.com: "an ascendant trend line along with the 200 SMA offered intraday support," says the analyst, adding: "With price also above 100 SMA in the mentioned time frame, the downside continues to be limited, although there are not much support for buyers according to technical readings: indicators head south below their midlines, gaining bearish momentum. Break below 93.00 will expose the 92.40 lows recently accomplished, while below this last, the pair may attempt to extend its slide with 91.80 then in mind," she concludes.

Valeria spots support levels at: 93.00, 92.70 and 92.40, while resistance levels at: 93.80, 94.10 and 94.45.
