It traded as low as 0.6084 and is currently consolidating losses. An immediate resistance is near the 0.6130 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6275 swing high to 0.6084 low.
The next major resistance is near the 0.6180 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6180 on the same chart.
The trend line is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6275 swing high to 0.6084 low. A clear move above the 0.6180 resistance might start a steady increase towards the 0.6250 zone. Any more gains might send the pair towards 0.6300.
