However, it made a rebound and in the early Monday morning left the formation in the northern direction.

The surge was not sharp, as the pair still needs to cross a combination of the upper edge of a junior descending channel and the 200-hour SMA. In addition to that, it stuck near the updated weekly PP at 1.1740 that is backed up by the 100-hour SMA.

These obstacles as well as the Friday’s jump by 34 basis points just in hour suggest that the rate is likely to retreat for some time. An aggregate of technical indicators support this scenario. In addition to that, market sentiment remains 57% bearish.
