The pause taken by the players to increase at the close of March, led to a rather deep decline, but the bears failed to completely level the bullish gains and reach an advantage of forces. At the moment, support for the historical level of 1.0778 has been reached, then you can identify the target for the breakdown of the cloud H4 (1.0726 - 1.0679) among the bearish landmarks, the minimum extreme of March (1.0636) and the level of 100% of working out the weekly target for the breakdown of the Ichimoku cloud (1.0595). The slowdown and a long stop are now possible on any of the listed supports. The forces that formed a long lower shadow in March will now struggle to maintain uncertainty and some parity, trying to restrain the large-scale activity of the bears. The main resistance with the opening of the new week remained in place.Today,
On lower time frames, the pair is now in the upward correction zone. The players to rise have already gained support from the analyzed technical indicators, if they manage to stay in the zone of attraction and influence of the central Pivot level (1.0814) under the circumstances, then we can expect the development of a correction, the next guideline for which is the weekly long-term trend on H1 (1.0930). In case of consolidation below the level (1.0814) and when the minimum is updated (1.0773), the reference points of the higher time intervals will be supplemented by the support of the classic Pivot levels of the current day 1.0766 - 1.0724 - 1.0676.

The players on the downside were unable to roam last week. They turned out to be blocked in a fairly narrow range, between supports of important levels 1.2305 - 1.2214 (daily Kijun + weekly Tenkan and Fibo Kijun) and resistance 1.2450 - 1.2540 (monthly Tenkan + weekly Kijun and Senkou Span A + final boundary of the daily cross + monthly Fibo Kijun). With the beginning of the new week, the data of support and resistance have retained their location and have not lost their relevance. Therefore, the superiority in forces is likely to go to someone who can leave the range of the past week and reliably go beyond the indicated landmarks.
In the lower halves, we are currently witnessing the emergence of a correction. The pair has already managed to rise to the resistance of the central Pivot level (1.2290) and is now testing it for strength. The next reference point in the upward direction is the weekly long-term trend (1.2359). Now, reliable consolidation above these levels can serve as a good basis for the formation of rebound from the met supports of the upper time intervals, which will further strengthen the bulls. Reference points within the day in this case will be R2 (1.2490) and R3 (1.2577). Failure and rebound from the key resistance of the lower halves (1.2290 - 1.2359) encountered will allow players to lower their hopes to update the low (1.2204) and continue to decline. Support for the higher halves will join the support of the classic Pivot levels 1.2177 - 1.2090 - 1.1977.
