GBP/USD: 4-hour

GBP/USD: 4-hour Chart

Is that a descending channel forming on GBP/USD? After all, this playa just formed succeeding lower highs and lower lows! With Stochastic about to crossover from overbought conditions, I wouldn’t be surprised if the bears come back in force and push the pair lower. Of course, a solid bullish candle close above the recent highs would indicate that the channel is invalidated, and could signal a stronger move higher.

EUR/USD: 4-hour

EUR/USD: 4-hour Chart

After making a run at 1.3700, EUR/USD has come crashing back down to earth, having dropped over 300 pips from its highs. Is this the end of the bullish run, or are the bulls just waiting for the right opportunity to strike again? Keep an eye out for the 1.3280 level, as it’s served as a major level of interest in the past. I suggest waiting for some reversal candlesticks at this level before jumping in with more buy positions.

USD/JPY: Daily

USD/JPY: Daily Chart

Look out USD/JPY! The good times might be coming to an end soon! A doji, a spinning top, and a bearish red candle have just formed in succession on the daily chart, which is a sign of a potential top. With Stochastic stuck in overbought territory for the longest time, this could finally be the time for a correction on this pair. If you’re more of the cautious type, you can wait for Stochastic to move below 80.0, or for more candlestick confirmation, such as three black crows to form, before going short.

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

    GBPUSD is definitely in a downfall. I trade with fibs and booked my profits at 1.57244. In hidsight I think that was an early close. Well, better a few pips richer than having nothing at all.

    Today’s European morning sessins was quite slow and slowly picking up steam.

    I’m short on NZDUSD but so far its just ranging. Look forward to a big drop this week on the Kiwi.
