Technically speaking the outlook is mixed at best. We had a very bearish support break earlier this week and that has us leaning bearish now, but the consolidation yesterday showed that the market is still undecided.

Trading Idea: Since it is Friday we will not be entering any new trades, but if we were we would be looking for reasons to get short as we are still bearish on the pair. No good S/R lines at the moment.

Have a good weekend and the site will likely be down for some upgrades this weekend. We are getting a new home page, new pro dashboard and more. See you Monday!
