The price has pierced the golden ratio and bulls will be looking for a daily close above to confirm to the market that they are in control, opening prospects for higher territories for the foreseeable future:

The price is meeting resistance around the neckline of the M-formation which could lead to a correction back to test the prior highs that would be expected to offer some initial support. If bears do not come out of hibernation at this point, then a break of the early May highs at 1.2638 will likely lead to a grind back towards 1.30 the figure.
