Worth registered an intra-week low at 1.1215 on constructing divergence earlier than recovering sharply into the shut of the week. Be aware weekly shut under 1.13 was by no means resisted and as such, retains our focus in value greater whereas above this threshold.
Preliminary resistance is eyed on the sliding parallel (pink) extending off the January 2017 highs round ~1.1470s backed by the September exterior weekly-reversal shut at 1.1603. Finally a breach above channel resistance / 38.2% retracement at 1.1228 can be wanted to mark resumption of the broader up-trend.
