Latest updates

USD/JPY

What buyers were concerned about yesterday did not happen: The price did not break the newly formed uptrend line and kept going up, testing the 108 area. Therefore, our uptrend view is still maintained. Look for the opportunity to add long positions when the price breaks 108. The Stop Loss point also narrows below the bottom of 107.3. If this zone is broken, it will alert an upside problem and the price may move sideways in the range area.

EUR/USD

After the bearish patterns on both the daily chart and the H4 chart, the price is blocked at 1.088 with some resistance signals such as the pinbar on the H4 chart and the doji bar on the daily chart. However, the rebound was not strong and the price was still below the MA20. Continue to expect prices to penetrate the 1.088 zone. You can add a short position when this happens. The target is the lower boundary of the range.

GBP/USD

The hesitation of prices has brought more and more insecurity to the sellers. Price has not been able to return to the downside while still above the trend line. Today, we need to focus on observing the zone of 1.227. If this resistance is broken, a short-term uptrend structure will be confirmed and we may need to abandon short positions. However, with the current situation, we can still keep the short positions.

USD/CAD

Nothing attractive on the USD/CAD chart. Price could not surpass the level 1.40 and MA20 on the daily chart. The trend is not clear so we should avoid trading for the time being.

AUD/USD

AUD / USD is also gradually becoming less attractive. Price is trying to retest the peaks but very timid. Moreover, the area of resistance around the current level is very dense, so the risk of buying in is very high. Selling is not attractive because there is no clear signal. In short, we should spend time observing AUD/USD before there’s a new signal to take action.
