The quick bearish decline took place towards 0.6700-0.6800 where narrow ranged consolidation range was established.

On August 9, bearish breakout below the depicted consolidation range (0.6700-0.6840) was executed. This allowed the current bearish decline to occur towards 0.6600-0.6570.

Recently, early signs of bullish recovery are being manifested around the recent low around 0.6550. This indicates a possible bullish pullback.
Conservative traders should wait for the current bullish pullback towards 0.6700-0.6720 for a low-risk SELL entry. S/L should be placed above 0.6770.
