That low tested a lower trendline on the hourly chart at 109.822. The low reached 109.846 before rebounding back higher. The pair currently trades at 109.99.

The technical bias would still need to see a break below the trend line and the swing area at 109.675-723 (swing highs from December). The rising 100 hour MA (currently at 109.617) is also in play for a shift in bias (on a break).  

The Nasdaq and S&P have turned back lower. The S&P is currently down -2.34 points or -0.07%. The NASDAQ is down -5.13 points or -0.05%.  

Spot gold is off its lows but still remains negative on the day at $1545.50, down $-2.50

WTI crude oil futures are up $0.46 or 0.79% at $58.54.

The 10 year yield is trading at 1.819%, -2.6 basis points. The low reached 1.8109%.
