H4. At H4 the situation has changed to bearish. Last week the pair failed to enter the positive area: it was stopped by resistance created by the upper limit of the Ichimoku cloud. The fact that the greenback retested 0.9170 didn’t produce any significant effect, so the bulls left the market. As a result, the pair turned down and resumed the downward trend. Ichimoku indicator became bearish: the cloud is expanding down, Tenkan and Kijun formed the dead cross (C). Therefore we should expect the downtrend to strengthen.
