On the upside, the pair is expected to face a hurdle near 1.3139, the intraday high of yesterday ahead of 1.3252, the horizontal resistance area and then 1.3313, the swing high of the last major upside rally. The technical bias will remain bullish as long as the 1.3000 support area is intact.

US Inflation

The U.S. Commerce Department said the consumer price index rose 0.3% in September, in line with expectations and after a 0.2% increase the previous month. Year-on-year, consumer prices increased 1.5% last month, also in line with forecasts and after having risen 1.1% in August. That was its highest reading since October 2014. Core CPI, which excludes food and energy costs, increased by 0.1% last month, below forecasts for a 0.2% rise. The weak report further dampened optimism over the strength of the U.S. economy, after U.S. industrial production data missed expectations on Monday.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, selling the pair on short term rallies still appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
