USD/JPY

The price has approached the bottom of 106.6, so you should consider escaping short orders or moving Stop Loss to reduce the risk. Remember that the area 106.6 is the confluence of the support and the lower border of Bollinger bands so it may not be broken immediately. You should not enter a new order at this time, only sell when prices break below. The next target is 106.

EUR/USD

The signal that we have been waiting for many days has finally arrived: the price approached the border above 1.142 and created a false breakout. You may consider selling. Stop Loss can be placed above the battery bar on daily or safer above the zone 1.148. These are considered short-term orders in the medium term. The immediate target is the MA20 on the daily chart and the lower band of range, the zone of 1.116.

GBP/USD

The price recovered strongly and penetrated the neckline of the previous multi-peak pattern. However, the short-term uptrend is only considered to continue when the peak of 1,266 is broken. Currently, the candlesticks on the daily chart and H4 chart still support the sell orders, so you should continue to maintain. Place SL above 1.268. Add short orders when the price breaks the bottom of 1.248.

USD/CAD

Our guess is correct: prices only break the trend line and then fall back down. It is currently retesting the decisive price zone 1.35. You should keep the old short orders, move the Stop Loss and prepare to add new positions when the signal breaks down. The target will be the bottom of 1.33.

AUD/USD

The price has re-tested the 0.706 zone but could not cross. The price action is also showing the return of the selling side. As mentioned before, we only abandon view decreases when the area of 0.706 is broken. You may consider selling. The RR ratio is very good, however, we need a tight Stop Loss above 0.706 because the price has been accumulating relatively long.
