USD/JPY: 1-hour

USD/JPY: 1-hour Chart

There’s no stopping my boy the yen, is there? USD/JPY is now steadily trading below the 76.00 mark, and is currently forming a descending channel. Price is now right smack in the middle of the channel, but I expect traders to be keeping an eye out for potential support around 75.60 and resistance at 76.15.

EUR/USD: 4-hour

EUR/USD 4-hour Chart

So much for resistance at 1.4000! EUR/USD bulls were just too strong yesterday, as they broke the pair out of its recent wedge and set a new high just below 1.4250. Watch out though, as a shooting star has formed. With Stochastic also showing overbought conditions, have the bulls ran out of steam? Be on the lookout for a bearish marubozu candle as a sign that the bears are back.

GBP/JPY: 1-hour

GBP/JPY: 1-hour Chart

Finally! After sticking within a tight 100-pip range the whole week, GBP/JPY finally broke out of its range. The only question now is, could this be fakeout? Or could the pair be headed to new highs? I’ve got a feeling that 122.00 could serve as resistance-turned-support, but I’d rather wait for a few more tests to see whether it is holding or not.
