Trading Recommendations

It is expected that trading will take place between Tuesday’s ranges 99.14-100.19. However, the fact that on Monday, the pair closed down, and its range is fully included the range of Friday, as well as the formation of a bearish candle on Monday absorption continue to dominate on the daily chart. Breakthrough of domestic support 99.35 would threaten the 99.14 low and would face further weakness towards 98.88 and 98.69 projected support. A fresh wave of pressure is needed to make a break above 100.19 and open the way to a pair of 100.63 and a maximum of 101.05 on Monday.
