USD/JPY dropped like a rock last week, falling from the 146.00 zone to trade at its current levels near the 140.00 psychological handle.

Are we looking at a bearish flag situation here?

Those who are betting on more losses for USD/JPY can take advantage of Stochastic showing an “overbought” signal just as the pair hangs out at the top of a 150-pip range.

If you’d rather buy USD against JPY, then you might want to watch out for bounces above the 138.50 range support or a clear breakout above the 4-hour consolidation.

What do you think? Which way will USD/JPY go next?

Breakout alert! Spot gold prices recently broke a descending trend line resistance but also encountered enough sellers around the $1,800 mark to prevent further upside action.

Thing is, the most recent daily candlesticks are already hinting at a pause if not a pullback.

Look out for a pullback to the broken trend line that had served as resistance for most of 2022.

If XAU/USD doesn’t pull back down all the way to the trend line, then lower Fibonacci retracement levels near the 100 SMA may attract enough buyers.

Don’t discount more gold-buying though! If XAU/USD gets enough momentum to make new November highs or bust through the 200 SMA, then we could see the pair revisit areas of interest like $1,870 or $2,000.
