EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

It corrected above the 1.0980 and 1.1000 levels. However, the previous support near the 1.1025 level acted as a strong resistance. As a result, the pair is currently declining and is trading below 1.1010.

Moreover, there is an ascending channel in place with support at 1.1000 on the hourly chart. If there is a downside break below the channel support, the pair could resume its decline. An immediate support is near 1.0995 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0965 swing low to 1.1024 high.

Any further losses might push the price back towards the 1.0965 low. On the upside, there are many important resistances near 1.1025 and 1.1040. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1045 on the hourly chart.

Therefore, EUR/USD must surpass 1.1025 and 1.1045 to move into a positive zone. If not, it could slide back to 1.0965.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis Dollar Yen

There was a break above the 107.20 level and the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 107.78 high to 106.95 low. However, the pair is approaching a couple of important resistances near the 107.40 level.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 107.78 high to 106.95 low is also near 107.37 to act as a resistance. Additionally, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 107.50 on the hourly chart.

If there is an upside break above 107.40 and 107.50, the pair could start a fresh increase towards the 108.00 level. Conversely, if the pair fails to climb above 107.50, it could resume its decline below the 107.00 support.
