H4. The pair was supported by the Ichimoku Cloud top, and after a brief consolidation above 102.70 US dollar resumed recovery. In general, technical picture is completely in favor of the bulls. Tenkan and Kijun formed a new Golden Cross above the Cloud. The Cloud continues to rise, which also has a positive impact on the long-term market sentiment. Only the fact that the pair is overbought can hinder further growth.
