On the 4 hours chart, the pair reached the 100.0 level of the Fibonacci Extension (1.0250 zone) after completing a double wave up.
There is a bearish divergence at the MACD, and the RSI is pointing at an over bought area, which means we can start looking for PUT opportunities.
On one hour chart there is an up trend line.
We are waiting for a double wave towards the trend line, and a break below it, or if we want to be more certain, below the level of 1.0175 to start selling PUT options.
If the pair will go above the 1.0250 zone before we have an opportunity to sell, the opportunity will be cancelled.
