What happens on a break?
On a break to the upside, the pair would next target levels near 0.75602 (see daily chart below). There is a swing area between the highs this week and that higher extreme (see red numbered circles).
Move above that level and traders would target the 61.8% retracement the move down from the February 2021 high at 0.76094 (see daily chart below).
On the downside, a break of the 100 hour moving average would have traders looking at the 50% midpoint of the range since the 2021 high at 0.74867 (see daily chart below).
Move below that level and the rising 200 hour moving average (green line in the hourly chart above) at 0.7470 would be the next target. A move below that level would be the first break since March 17 and would likely increase the bearish corrective bias.
