The price is below the cloud and under Chinkou-Span, that’s a confirmed buy signal. The Kijun-sen is moving horizontally. The Tenkan-sen is directed down. The cloud is directed upwards. The southern movement remains until Kijun-Sen is above the price.

Trading recommendations

The pair is still in an upward channel at its low boundary. If the boundary is broken the upward correction will be over and the pair will return to the falling. If the price consolidates below the resistance 0.8850, it may continue the downward trend in a short term. The potential target is 0.8800.
