5 August, 2015

EURUSD (1.08): EURUSD closed on a bearish note yesterday for the second session and confirms the resistance at 1.0975 on the daily charts. On the intraday sessions, the breakdown of prices near 1.095 through 1.09275 is indicating a test of lower support near 1.082. We do anticipate a possibility of a retest to the broken support at 1.09275 as well. The price action near 1.082 will dictate the future course of action EURUSD as a break below 1.082 will likely see a further continuation of the bearish momentum that could see EURUSD test previous lows at 1.04 - 1.05 region.

USDJPY (124.4): USDJPY has successfully managed to reverse from the lows near 123.5 and is currently struggling to break above the previous highs near 124.5. Short term resistance is at 124.775 followed by 125.43. On the intraday charts price is back near the upper end of the ranging price action seen the past few weeks. A break of this resistance and a potential retest for support will validate the view for a test to 125.65. However if resistance caps prices, we could see another consolidation take place near 124.

GBPUSD (1.55): GBPUSD is attempting to break the minor rising trend line connecting the lows of 8th July and 24th July. But the current break out level is right near a major long term support zone at 1.552 which could make things tricky. On the intraday charts price is now trading outside the rising price channel and just a few pips above the major support zone at 1.5516 through 1.5455. We can expect the support to hold, in which case there could be another test to previous resistance at 1.565. In the event the support at 1.5516 through 1.5455 fails, GBPUSD could aim for a decline to 1.52.
