This print missed the market expectation for a decrease of 0.6% by a wide margin.”“On the downside, 1.3530 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of the one-month-old uptrend) could be seen as the next bearish target ahead of 1.3500 (psychological level).”“Resistances are located at 1.3600 (psychological level, Fibonacci 23.6% retracement, 100-period SMA) and 1.3650 (50-period SMA, static level).”
