The retracement was held above the support line at 1.0850 since yesterday.
On the 4-hourly chart, the 10 SMA is crossing over the 20 SMA, indicating the bearish momentum is waning.
The daily Stochastic Oscillator reading is below 20, suggesting a rebound.
However, if the support line at 1.0820 is broken, then we can expect an extended downtrend.
