Chart Analysis: What’s going to happen next?

EUR/USD

Well the Euro ended up falling to 3450 like I said it would last Thursday. Both 4hr and daily stochastics are still trending down and are not in oversold territory yet. However, the pair seems to have found support at its 50 EMA on the daily chart. The pair is currently trading around 3470 and I think we will see the pair to make another push down towards the 50 EMA at around 3450. Look for the pair to fall to that level and it may even drop further towards 3400.

GBP/USD

The Cable dropped to 9700 like I said it would last week and I hope you’ve been able to snag some profits. The pair actually dropped to as low as 9675 but then quickly shot back up. Daily stochastics are in oversold territory but have not crossed up yet and 4hr stochastics are also trending down. I think we may see the pair stay put for the meantime but it could drift slightly lower to 9650 where the 100 SMA on the daily chart is currently at.

USD/CHF

The Swissy did end up pushing through 2300 today but it found resistance at its 200 SMA on the daily chart. 4hr stochastics are trending down after just leaving overbought territory and daily stochastics are also in overbought territory. I think the resistance at the 2300 mark will hold and we should see the pair drop in the short term. Look for the Swissy to fall to its 100 SMA which is currently at 2265 or even the 2250 mark in the short term.

USD/JPY

Well I said last week that I thought the Dollar would have enough juice in its tank to rally to 121.50 against the Yen and so far that is what has taken place. However, I think it might be time to start taking profits and maybe look for short trades soon. Both 4hr and daily stochastics have crossed down and are in overbought territory which indicates a good possibilty of a drop in the short term. The pair is currently at 121.40 and I would watch for it to drop to around 121.00 some time tomorrow.
