Regardless of a weak opening the market managed to close above the prior day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 1.07, KMD/USD closed below it after spiking as high as 1.09 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 0.98 in the previous session, Komodo found buyers again around the same price level today at 0.99.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
