As seen, the bulls have steppe din in the 15-minute candle rotation and eye a 50% mean reversion towards 130.30 that meets the prior support that was broken in early Asian trade. This does leave the outlook bearish for the day ahead with a test of 130.00 eyed ahead of the Federal Reserve on Wednesday.
