Cable improved near-term structure on extension of recovery rally from fresh low at 1.6582, which cracked psychological 1.6700 barrier and peaked at 1.6725, where the pair ran out of steam. Stall ahead of 1.6740 breakpoint and subsequent pullback to 1.6660, where the price attempts to stabilize above hourly 55SMA, keeps the downside risk in play, as hourly studies are losing momentum. Slide below 1.660 and yesterday’s spike low at 1.6640, would bring important 1.66 support in near-term focus, with violation of the latter to signal fresh extension of pullback from 1.6821 peak. Conversely, attempt to build near-term base, requires bounce through 1.6700 barrier to avert immediate downside risk and open 1.6725/40 hurdles for test. Studies on 4-hour chart are in neutral mode, with break of either side, required to define near-term direction.

Near-term price action is at the back foot, as reversal from 102.82, 21 Feb peak, extended and cracked psychological / trendline support at 102 zone. Hourly studies are improving, as bounce from fresh low at 101.99 reached mid-point of 102.82/101.99 descend at 102.40, however, regain of lower platform at 102.60 is required to confirm reversal and bottom formation. Otherwise, risk of renewed attempt lower and clear break below 102 handle would further weaken near-term structure and open lower boundaries of two-week range, also daily cloud base, for test.
