Daily Forex Preview for October 14, 2015

14 October, 2015

EURUSD (1.13): EURUSD has been edging higher but is also consolidating into a rising wedge pattern. A breakout to the upside from above the wedge pattern could likely confirm further upside in EURUSD but a breakout to the downside looks more convincing, off the rising wedge and the price channel itself. Support comes in at 1.1348, which if fails could see a decline to 1.1286 through 1.1254 level of support. Price action on the daily charts remains inconclusive at this point so the H4 charts breakout is likely to set the tone in EURUSD in the near term.

USDJPY (119.6): USDJPY has broken out from the rising price channel and is seen to be currently bouncing off the support at 119.52. Short term resistance comes in at 119.775, which if broken could see a rally back to the breakout level. Alternatively, if 119.775 holds as resistance, USDJPY could possibly see some sideways price action between 119.775 and 119.52 before breaking to the downside, targeting 119.145.

GBPUSD (1.528): GBPUSD's decline to 1.5229 yesterday saw prices reversing off this level. The bias in GBPUSD remains to the upside with a test back to 1.5343 on the cards. A close above 1.5343 could see GBPUSD aim for 1.5455 level of resistance which remains untested. On the daily chart, GBPUSD remains well supported after yesterday's decline to 1.5237 but a daily close above 1.533 is required for a rally towards 1.5455.
