  • Intraday bias remains bearish till the time pair holds key resistance at 1142 levels.
  • A sustained break below 1134 will test key supports at 1127/1121/1115 levels respectively.
  • A daily close above 1142 will drag the parity up towards key resistances at 1153/1168/1172/1180/1193 marks.

We prefer to take short position in USD/KRW only below 1132, stop loss 1142 and target 1121/1115 levels.
