With lots of swing areas in the consolidation area, finding targets become more difficult ahead of the low at 0.9213.  

Drilling to the five minute chart below, the pair has been able to stay below the falling 100 and 200 bar MAs (there was a small breach of the 200 bar MA earlier but it was by the smallest of margins).  For traders, those MAs can help define short term risk. Stay below, and let the trend lower continue. Move above and the bias becomes more neutral (corrective).
