Chart Analysis: What’s going to happen next?

EUR/USD

The Euro has been tanking but has managed to start its retracement. Daily stochastics are still trending up but 4hr stochastics are in overbought territory. The pair also faces resistance at its 50 EMA on the daily chart. Look for the pair to drop down to around 3400 and maybe even 3370 before moving back up.

GBP/USD

The Cable has been rallying for the past 2 days but looks like it may be falling back down soon. Daily stochastics are trending up which means we could still see the pair rally but 4hr stochastics are in overbought territory. Currently the pair is at 9830 and I would watch for it to move back down to at least 9800 before moving back up.

USD/CHF

The Swissy has dropped the past 2 days after a long string of runs. Daily stochastics are trending down and are in overbought territory while 4hr stochastics are trending up. Look for the pair to move up to around 2450 before continuing its drop.

USD/JPY

Well the Yen never seems to want to go down even though all signs point towards a drop. I would hold off on this pair for now but both 4hr and daily stochastics are in overbought territory and show signs for the pair to fall.
