Moreover, bulls are likely going to reach the next resistance at 1.2964 - 1.2976. Considering the previously formed "Double Top", bears will probably try to achieve support at 1.2926 - 1.2887 afterwards.
The price is consolidating near the 89 Moving Average, so bulls are likely going to test the nearest resistance at 1.2964 - 1.2976. If a pullback from this area happens, there'll be an option of having a decline towards the 89 Moving Average.
