Key quotes



"In the short term, the hourly chart shows price contained by a bearish 200 SMA, with 20 SMA heading higher below current price and indicators turning flat in positive territory."



"In the 4 hours chart technical readings stand also in positive territory losing upward strength, suggesting selling interest around the critical level."



"Nevertheless stronger resistance stands in the 1.3430/40 price zone, and it will be only in the unlikely case of a run above it that the pair will confirm the bullish mode. "
