During New York session the area around 0.8755 capped the upside. Between the mentioned level and 0.8766 there is an important short term resistance area. “The 4 hours chart shows price struggling with a bearish 20 SMA at current levels and momentum turning south below 100, with the daily high of 0.8766 as immediate resistance to overcome to see the pair extending its recovery, at least intraday”, says Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet.
