The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.7764 swing high to 0.7689 low. The 50 hourly simple moving average is also near the trend line.

Therefore, a clear break above the trend line and 0.7730 is must for a steady increase. The next major resistance could be 0.7750, above which the price could rise towards the 0.7800 resistance.
