Backside line: The main focus stays on the 1.13-handle for now with the short-bias in danger whereas above. Finally a breach above pitchfork resistance is required to counsel a extra important low is in place and IF this reversal is legit, intraday losses needs to be restricted to 1.1267. From a buying and selling standpoint, I’ll favor fading weak spot whereas above at the moment’s low concentrating on the higher parallels. That mentioned, weak spot past 1.13 needs to be approached with excessive caution- a weekly shut would be the ‘inform’ shifting deeper into February commerce – tread flippantly.
