USD/JPY is also moving as expected. The target price zone 107 is now getting closer. This is the bottom of April and also a strong support area so it is not easy for the price to penetrate the first approach. We expect to see bullish signals in this zone.
There was hesitation, even a bearish signal after the breakout of the March trendline. With conflicting signals like the present, it's best to avoid trading. Buying orders are considered only if the price breaks out of the resistance of 1.10.
GBP/USD has officially completed the bullish flag pattern but with a disappointing breakout force. The resistance zone 1.25-126 has not been completely broken, so buying at this time has certain risks. You should consider exploring the market with small positions. Wait for the bulls to give clearer signals to enter the order with standard volume.
As a warning, the declining force at 1.40 is not high so it is easy to be broken. Currently USD/CAD has penetrated this zone and is moving towards the target of 1,378. This price zone is not the lower boundary of the channel but it is likely to face resistance of the buyers. Short term traders should exit when the price approaches and wait for the opportunity to re-enter later.
AUDUSD is approaching the resistance zone of 0.64-0.65. Those who buy in the short term should consider preparing to exit the position, or at least move the Stop Loss to reduce the risk. In case of a successful breakout price, the target will be the upper border of the channel - the zone of 0.666.
