According to Valeria Bednarik from FXStreet, "the hourly chart shows indicators heading higher above their midlines, albeit lacking clear momentum at the time being."



She adds that "the 4 hours chart the technical tone is also mild positive, and further gains are possible if 101.60 holds, yet a break below it exposes the pair to a slide towards 101.20 price zone."
