Our upside target which we predicted in the previous analysis has been hit. Turning up. The pair posted a rebound from 149.45 and broke above its 20-period and 50-period moving averages. In addition, the 20-period moving average turned up and crossed above the 50-period one. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50.

To conclude, as long as 151.25 holds on the downside, look for a further rebound with targets at 152 and 152.35 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 151.25 with the target at 151.00
