Technical indicators are pointing lower. The pair has printed a double-top at 1.2730, often a signal of a trend change, breaching below the 50-hour SMA and pushing against the 100 SMA in the same timeframe.
The next support levels are 1.2550 and 1.2515 ahead of the target of the above-mentioned figure, at 1.2460.
On the upside, a break above 1.2600 would cancel the negative view and shift the focus towards 1.2650 and 1.2730.
