The pair is below the Kijun-Sen and Tenkan-Sen, Kijun-Sen is pointing down, the Cloud stopped growing and began to fall.

The Bollinger middle line is turning down fallowing the price. The indicator lines are narrowing. We expect a continuation of the decline.

Long positions should only be opened if the price returns above the Cloud. Break of 96 will push the pair to further sales. We recommend to stay away from sales until it becomes clear where the pair will continue to move.
