Daily Forex Preview for January 05, 2016

5 January, 2016

EURUSD Daily Pivots

EURUSD (1.08): EURUSD's attempted rally was capped near 1.095 - 1.0932 as aniticpated and with prices being rejected at this level, EURUSD declined sharply back to the familiar support at 1.0815 - 1.08 which marks the head and shoulders pattern's neckline off the daily chart. A break below 1.0815 - 1.08 is essential for further downside to 1.0633 which marks the measured move to the downside. Failure to break the neckline could indicate a renewed momentum with the potential to break above 1085 - 1.0932 resistance and could potentially invalidate the head and shoulders pattern. The Stochastics is currently looking bullish and we expect to see a minor move to the upside ahead of the declines.

USDJPY Daily Pivots

USDJPY (119.4): USDJPY broke down to new lows below 119 yesterday but managed to pull back strongly. Price action however still remains within yesterday's range and only a break out off the high or the low from yesterday's range will signify further directional bias. To the downside, support at 119.14 remains a short term key level which if holds could see a move to 120.815 region on the 4-hour chart. With the Stochastics moving up from the 20 oversold level, a short term correction is very likely.

GBPUSD Daily Pivots

GBPUSD (1.47): GBPUSD's attempt to reverse off the 1.471 handle failed but prices on the daily chart closed out with a small bodied candlestick pattern with large wicks. This indicates a potential indecisive markets and a close above yesterday's high of 1.4816 could see a short term correction in GBPUSD. On the 4-hour chart, GBPUSD has managed to find temporary support at 1.47 region. If this support holds, GBPUSD could look to an upside correction taking back the cable to 1.494 level of previous resistance which hasn't been tested firmly. To the downside, a break below 1.47 could see further downside in store.
