Comment: Overall the market is short term negative and still projects selloffs to test 1.2200*/12178* support levels. A close under 1.2178* alerts for a larger topping downturn, dropping below 1.2100-. Yesterday's bounce hints for corrections, but rallies trapped inside last Wednesday's range should bear flag to setup for further selloffs. A close over 1.2410* is needed to reverse out of the downturn.
