It is essential to be cautious of the potential for a significant gap. If it sells off significantly, a drop to around 1.0573USD can be considered. If it rises, 1.082USD should be considered. In any case, it is difficult to predict how much fluctuation will occur on Monday.

It is advisable to make an effort to clear positions as much as possible.
