    The cross was rejected earlier today at 185.25 (38.2% of 180.36-188.28) following which it fell below 185.00 levels. The data in the UK is expected to show the Industrial production growth slowed in September. A minor squeeze in September trade deficit is also expected.

    The immediate support is seen at 184.32 (50% of 180.36-188.28), under which the losses could be extended to 184.00 handle. On the higher side, a break above 185.25 (38.2% of 180.36-188.28) would open doors for a re-test of 185.82 (200-DMA).
