On the 4-hour time frame, sustained strength beyond the $1875-81 resistance zone might trigger some short-covering move. However, the positive move might still be seen as an opportunity to initiate fresh bearish positions. This, in turn, might cap the upside near the $1900 level strong barrier breakpoint.
In the meantime, the exchange rate could likely gain support at $1864 level If the given support holds, the rate could maintain its consolidation in the short term. Although the bulls are likely to have some luck in their attempt, as the short-term moving averages have charted a bullish crossover.

The daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) looks north, towards its midlines of 50, allowing for further upside. Also, the moving average 5 is beneath the moving average 13 from above, about to yield a bullish crossover and adding credence to the recent rebound from the $22.46 support level.
Alternatively, selling pressure could intensify below the aforesaid moving average 5, with the rising trendline support at $21.64 on sellers’ radar. A breach of the latter would validate a rising channel breakdown, prompting the resumption of the recent sell-off.
