The outlook remains bearish, but note that the zone 111.50/30 is key support and a good place for a long position with tight stop loss. Purchases around this area will give a better price and risk/return. Immediate resistance is 112.30/50, whose breakthrough could lead price to neutral zone for testing 113.00 or higher. On the downside, a clear break and daily close below 111.30 would reactivate the bearish pattern as part of the scenario of the double top (118.60).
