The drop below this level, the next area to watch is at the bottom of the gap created at the start of last week’s trading, which comes in at 109.42. Over the near-term, a period of consolidation appears likely, given the approach of resistance at 112.00 and the persistent overbought reading on the Stochastic, a price momentum indicator. In addition, a move above the 112.00 level is required to improve the intermediate-term outlook. A break above this level would suggest a return to 115.50 is possible.
