The price has also moved below its 50% midpoint at 0.92478 of the move up from the September 15 low. That level will be eyed as a risk/bias defining level going forward today. Will back above and we could see the buyers return.
The pair has moved back below recent swing highs going back to August 11, August 12 and August 13 along with the swing high highs from September 8 and September 13. Those levels come in around 0.9240 and 0.9233.
