Activity in China’s services sector in March grew at a slow pace for the third month in a row.
China’s services sector PMI fell to 52.2 points from 52.6 in February and the lowest in six months.
On a daily chart we can see that the pair is getting closer to a resistance trend line.
Our tendency is to sell around this resistance.
How can we do that?
On an hour chart we are waiting for the pair to go a bit higher, towards the levels of 1.0090 – 1.0100 and to see a bearish divergence developing at the MACD and RSI.
After that we we’ll be waiting to see a bearish pattern created and one which would be the trigger to a sell pair.
