USD/INR daily chart
USD/INR broke below a bear flag pattern near the 71.20 support level and then retested the 71.60 resistance. The spot is still potentially weak below the 72.00 figure and could decline towards the 70.40 price level. However, a daily close above the 72.00 figure can invalidate the bear flag and lead to further upside towards the 72.40 level.
