In the short term the bears are expected to aim at the weekly , which guards the July low at 1.0808/1.0795. Consolidation below this area should pave the way toward the monthly at 1.0724. The medium term outlook remains broadly , as the Fed meeting is looming and weekly technical indicators are pointing confidently downwards.
