This occurs within the context of a strong and steep overall downtrend. Monday’s price action broke down below the key 1.2500 price level, as well as below a short-term uptrend support line that represented last week’s bullish correction.
With continued bearishness on this breakdown, price could initially target last week’s newly established four-year low in the 1.2140 price region.
Below that level, the key downside support target to watch would be the 1.2000 price region, which represents a significant technical and psychological price target level.
