Key Quotes:



“The hourly chart shows price managed to recover above its 20 SMA that anyway remains flat a few pips below current price, while indicators turn lower towards their midline, holding for now in positive territory”.



“In the 4 hours chart price stalled right at a bearish 20 SMA, as indicators turn south around their midlines, suggesting there’s little room for a steady recovery. Renewed selling interest below the 1.6540 is required however, to confirm a new leg down, still eyeing 1.6465, March this year monthly low”.
