After bottoming out in the European morning USD/SGD hugged a tight range through the rest of Tuesday, the rate last up 4 pips at 1.3300 vs intraday lows of 1.3286. Bulls need a convincing break below 1.3300, a 61.8% retracement level, to confirm the bearish impetus. Bulls look for a beak of 1.3344 and especially 1.3388 to confirm an uptrend. The rate has dropped out of its recent 50-DMA/100-DMA sandwich, the 100-DMA now acts as resistance at 1.3326.
