In an alternative scenario and after the breakdown of important short-term resistance levels 0.7136 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), 0.7156 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), the upward correction will continue with targets at the resistance levels 0.7170 (EMA50 on the daily chart), 0.7190, 0.7270 (EMA144 on the daily chart).
