   •  Meanwhile, a bullish cross-over on the 1-hourly chart - 50-hour SMA moving above 100-hour and 200-hour SMA, support prospects for additional near-term gains.

   •  Bullish technical indicators on hourly/daily charts further reinforce the bullish set-up and set the stage for an extension of the pair's ongoing positive momentum.

   •  However, it would be prudent to wait for a sustained move beyond 100-day SMA, before positioning for further appreciating move towards the 1.1500 handle.
