While there is no confirmation of intervention from officials just yet, it all seems to point at the MAS as the one to blame for this flash 80 pips decline. Should further selling be seen in the days/weeks to come, only a break below 1.2840/50 will turn technicals slightly more positive near term, while on the topside, looks like 1.31 will now be a resistance that the MAS may want to keep defending.
