On the daily chart, the pair is trading in the upper Bollinger band, just on the level of its EMA130 and EMA65, both directed horizontally. Pair’s long-term upward trend was broken in the end of August as both moving averages changed their directions, while the RSI tested its support in the oversold zone below 20 mark. However, the trend is likely to be restoring now as the RSI finds the support in the Bullish 50 mark zone.  The Composite is about to test its MA’s that represent a strength of the market for both indicators.
