EURUSD (1.09): EURUSD's strong reversal off 1.051 - 1.059 support level on the daily time frame has seen prices break above 1.0876 - 1.083 level of resistance. Expecting a pullback to this price level to establish support will likely keep the bullish bias intact with the potential to rally to 1.10 level in the near term. Support comes in at 1.0825 ahead of a move towards 1.10. In the event that EURUSD fails the support at 1.083 region, prices could remain range bound within the mentioned support/resistance levels.

USDJPY (122.5): USDJPY's strong bearish engulfing formed yesterday has seen prices fall back to the previous support near 122.5. The bull flag pattern still remains in play but comes under increasing pressure of a failure. A drop below 122.5 could see a test to 122.5, the next support level. On the 4-hour chart time frame, the median line break has confirmed the downside view and 122.3 is the next level to watch which could offer a short term bounce. However, with the Stochastics forming a strong bearish divergence on the daily chart, the bias remains to the downside for now.

The 4-hour chart on GBPUSD shows prices trending strongly on breakout above 1.50375 with the upside target coming in at 1.524, marking the previous breakout from the rising price channel. A dip to the downside could see prices being tested at 1.5037 for support.
