EUR/JPY: Daily

EUR/JPY Chart

If you’ve been lookin’ to pick a top on EUR/JPY, this might be the signal that you’ve been waiting for! It appears that the pair is forming some bearish divergence on the daily chart, as Stochastic has formed lower highs while price just set a new high. Considering that yesterday’s candle finished with a bullish marubozu, I suspect we could still see some strength from the bulls. Keep an eye though, on that 105.00 handle homies! It may just prove to be a solid resistance point!

EUR/USD: 1-hour

This one’s for all you intraday traders! The bears have been in control lately, as they’ve dragged price down from its highs. Currently, it seems that price is finding resistance at the 50.0% Fibonacci level. If this continues to hold, I wouldn’t be surprised if the bears push price back down below the 1.3000 mark!

NZD/USD: 4-hour

NZD/USD Chart

Last up, here’s my take on the Kiwi. NZD/USD seems to have settled into a descending channel, with price currently chillin’ right smack at the middle. If you’re in the bull camp, a solid candle close above the .8200 handle would be a sign that the channel has been broken. On the flip side, we could see the pair fall before finding support at the bottom of the channel at around .8090.

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

    Iffy trades so far. Going in, but trying to keep risk on these at minimum.

    I’m thinking if we can get under 104 & 10365, that final push above 10450 was it for awhile. Now with the latest BOJ news just out that was really putting pressure on the yen…. not sure if we’ll see 105.
