Moreover, the pair is now well below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $5362 low to $7773 high. That’s why, there are chances of it extending declines in the near term. At present, the pair seems to be approaching the $6000 handle, which might act as a support. Once there is a break of the $6000 level, there are chances of more declines toward $5650.
