Key quotes



"Trading in a tight 60 pips range for second day in a row, the 4 hours chart shows that while price holds above a bullish 20 SMA, indicators turned lower and approach their midlines, diverging from price action."



"Mentioned SMA offers short term support around 1.7010 now, yet a downward acceleration through 1.7000 is required to confirm a bearish movement that can extend down to 1.6950 strong static support."



"The upside is favored yet messy, with a clear break above 1.7060 needed to confirm a bullish leg towards 1.7100 for today."
