A breakout over 86.16 could trigger a rally into downtrending angles at 86.43 and 86.65. These are the last two angles before the 86.87 main top.
Bearish traders are trying to form a potentially bearish secondary lower top inside the 85.94 to 86.16 retracement zone. If they succeed then additional downside pressure should emerge.
The main range is 82.45 to 86.87. Its retracement zone at 84.66 to 84.14 is the next major downside target. A long-term angle from 82.45 passes through this zone at 84.51, making it a valid downside target.
The tone of the session today is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the retracement zone at 85.94 to 86.16. A failure at 85.94 will indicate selling pressure while a breakout over 86.16 will be bullish.
