“Short term, the 1 hour chart shows price aiming to advance above a mild bearish 20 SMA, while indicators approached their midlines, still below them”

“In the 4 hours chart a strongly bearish 20 SMA has contained price action so far today, now again being pressured by price. Momentum turned lower around its midline while RSI remains in negative territory, lacking clear directional strength.“

“The 1.2370/1.2485 range should hold for the rest of the day, with market likely resuming activity on Wednesday’s European session.”
