• The pair's strong intraday up-move struggled to find acceptance above a short-term descending trend-line, extending from Nov. 23-29 tops through overnight swing high.
• Meanwhile, the pair's repeated failures to sustain/build on the positive momentum further beyond 200-hour EMA points to persistent selling interest at higher levels.
• Technical indicators on hourly charts have been gaining some traction but are yet to catch up with the positive momentum on the daily chart, further warranting some caution.
• Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a strong follow-through buying beyond the mentioned trend-line resistance before positioning for any further near-term recovery.
