There are signs of overbuying but no signs of reversal. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels after a small pullback, as the price has deviated strongly from the moving average. Sell positions should be considered only throughout the day from the resistance levels but only after the sellers' initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 109.63, the uptrend is likely to be broken.

- Support levels: 1.2583, 1.2518, 1.2425
- Resistance levels: 1.2646, 1.2726, 1.2812, 1.2891, 1.2951
From the technical point of view, the trend has changed to bearish. The price fell below the moving average and broke through down the priority change level. The MACD indicator is negative, but there are signs of a reversal in the form of divergence. That means that a breakout of the priority change level might be false. Under such market conditions, it is better to buy only after the price returns above the level of priority change level, with a bullish initiative. It is best to look for sell trades from resistance levels near the moving average.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2646 support level and fixes above again, the uptrend will likely resume.
