EUR/JPY: 1-hour

EUR/JPY Chart

After that steep dive below the 130.00 major psychological mark, EUR/JPY needed to pull up for some air. The pair appears ready to retrace to the Fib levels on the 1-hour time frame, as the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level is in line with the former support area. Stochastic has already reached the overbought region but hasn’t crossed down yet, which suggests that EUR/JPY could still make a higher pullback, possibly until the 130.00 handle or 50% Fib level.

USD/JPY: 1-hour

Looking to hop on that yen bandwagon? Look no further than this 1-hour chart on USD/JPY! After breaking through the trend line, the pair seems to be retracing back up a bit. Keep an eye out for the 38.2% Fib, as it lines up perfectly with a former support zone, as well as the falling trend line support. Sellers may be looking at this area to load up on their short positions!

EUR/AUD: 4-hour

EUR/AUD Chart

Would ya look at that! EUR/AUD looks like it just closed below the neckline support of a head and shoulders pattern. Now, I know that this chart pattern is usually taken as a bearish signal, but you should be aware that price is about to test support around a rising trend line. If you plan on trading the pair, watch out for candlesticks around the 1.4650 area. Bullish candlesticks could hint that EUR/AUD is on its way back up to 1.5000 while bearish ones could signal a bigger sell-off!

To get the complete picture and avoid getting blindsided by economic data, you also have to do your fundamental analysis.
