Scope is seen for eventual push lower for test of 1.2744/50 double-bottom and completion of bull phase the commenced from these levels.

With bears dominating on larger and lower timeframes studies, further weakness is seen favored, with bears to be interrupted by limited corrective rallies on oversold short-term conditions.

Break and weekly close above 101.00 barrier, suggests further appreciation, with initial targets standing at 101.79, 30/05 high and psychological 102.00 barrier.

Quick reversal nearly fully retraced 0.9035/0.9179, short-term corrective phase.
