Rate makes two-pip monthly low before bouncing back to the 1.2950 area, rallies again ahead of fix to clear stops said to be resting around the 1.3020/30 area but holds. Rate reaches to tech support around 1.2880 but traders say conditions are still on the thin side. Rate has two-way action into the lows suggesting short-term traders and profit-taking by the shorts. Support at or around the 50 day MA now being tested; the 50 day MA is next level needed to hold for the bulls to feel comfortable this week. Need a rally back over within 72 hours for the drop to be considered a correction and not a breakout. Rate likely has stops building in both directions; overhead resistance likely drops to the 1.3080 area; Long-term bulls are likely still in control of the market and this significant pullback is a buying opportunity in my view. Stops above the 1.3030 area likely today.
