On the daily chart, the price is moving up from the bottom MA of Bollinger Bands. A long-term uptrend does not seem to be broken yet as EMA130 is still directed up, while the RSI failed it support at 31.6. However, there is a chance that the pair has formed a double top formation earlier in September. If it is true, the critical point is going to be the area of 2.9744-2.9705, a breakout of which might resume the growth. The RSI and Composite are growing towards their MA’s, which indicate a weakness of the market as the shorter MA remains underneath the longer one.
