In the 4 hours chart 20 SMA capped the upside earlier on the day maintaining a strong bearish slope, while indicators head strongly south in negative territory, giving no signs of a possible upward correction”, said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “Former low at 1.2660 should now attract sellers if reached, while a break below mentioned low should see the pair extending its decline down to 1.2540/50 price zone”.
