The 50-dar exponential moving average (EMA) and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of July-August declines together constitute 73.82/80 support-joint that becomes the key for sellers to watch as a downside break of which could drag the quote to September 10 low near 73.42 before highlighting 50% Fibonacci retracement level of 73.07 for bears to watch.
