On Friday, the currency exchange rate acted in accordance with one of the scenarios, which suggested that as soon as markets will calm down the buck is going to try restoring some lost positions. Indeed, after failing to jump above the monthly R1 at 1.2099 the pair switched a direction and ended the week near the combined support level set up by the 55-hour SMA and the updated weekly PP at 1.1999. It seems that the turnaround was partially attributed to clash with the upper boundary of a medium-term rising wedge, which can be clearly seen on a daily timeframe. From this larger perspective the rate is expected to continue to gradually slip to the bottom. However, in the short run these attempts most likely will be neutralized by the 100- and 200-hour SMAs.
