Any currency cross traders in the house? I’ve spotted some neat retracement plays on EUR/GBP and CHF/JPY that you wouldn’t want to miss. Check ’em out!

EUR/GBP: 1-hour

After hitting highs near the .8950 area, EUR/GBP is back to playing around the .8888 levels.

What makes the area more interesting is that it’s near a 50% Fib retracement, previous resistance AND the 200 SMA on the chart.

CHF/JPY: 4-hour

CHF/JPY is having trouble breaking below the 111.75 levels, which isn’t surprising since it’s right above the SMAs and around a previous resistance level on the 4-hour chart.

Buying at current levels could get you a good reward-to-risk ratio especially if you believe that the franc will extend its uptrend against the yen.

If you’re one of them yen buyers, though, then you could also wait for a break below the channel that we’re seeing and trade a downside breakout instead.
