On the H4 chart, price has confirmed a bullish momentum breaking the previous high. We are bullish bias and are looking at price testing the first resistance at 137.636 where the 78.6% fibonacci retracement and 161.8% extension sits. It has pulled back slightly but if bullish momentum continues, it will bring the price to 139.397 where the swing high sits.
