EUR/USD: Technical Analysis

Scenario, offered in the previous analysis has been correct - the price tested the 1.4080-1.4040 resistance range and it currently resides around levels 1.4045/50. Indicators suggest growth, which gives reasons to postpone pullback down expectations for some time and expect a decline to commence right from the current levels. Support at 1.3850 should be considered as the target for decline. 1.3850 level breakout, together with up trend line (blue line) breakout, followed by fixation below, will indicate cardinal swings in the market sentiment.

USD/JPY: Technical Analysis

Considering current developments, technical picture seems to produce small effect on this pair. Having tested 76.44 minimum level, the price suddenly rose, at first, following intervention messages, then the BoJ intervention itself. At the moment the price resides at 81.30. Seems like the yen will continue weakening, regarding present attacks on the yen from the most G-7 central banks too. However, we should consider resistance 83.10/82.90 strength anyway. The situation is rather vague and uncertain, so it would be good idea to be wary of opening new yen positions.
