EUR/USD Technical Analysis

The Euro started a fresh increase after it broke the 1.1080 and 1.1100 resistance levels against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair even settled above the 1.1100 level to move into a positive zone.

It opened the doors for more gains above 1.1150 and the pair settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the pair traded as high as 1.1179 on FXOpen. It is currently correcting lower below the 1.1160 and 1.1150 support levels.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 1.1152 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The pair is now trading well below the 1.1140 level and the 50 hourly SMA.

At the outset, the pair is trading just below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.1065 low to 1.1179 high. An immediate support on the downside is near the 1.1110 level.

Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.1065 low to 1.1179 high might act as a support near the 1.118 level. If there are more downsides, EUR/USD could decline towards the 1.1080 support area.

On the upside, the previous supports near 1.1140 and 1.1150 are likely to act as strong resistances. To start a fresh increase towards 1.1180 and 1.1200, the pair must break 1.1150 and settle above the 50 hourly SMA.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis

The US Dollar struggled on many occasions to clear the 108.80 and 109.00 resistance levels against the Japanese Yen. As a result, the USD/JPY pair started a slow and steady decrease below the 108.50 support area.

Moreover, there was a close below the 108.50 support and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair even traded below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 108.29 low to 108.72 high.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis US Dollar Japanese Yen

It is currently testing the 108.30 support area, with a bearish angle. If there is a downside break below 108.30, the pair could test the 108.20 level or the 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the 108.29 low to 108.72 high.

Any further losses might trigger a strong decline towards the 108.00 and 107.80 support levels. On the upside, there are many hurdles for the bulls near the 108.50 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 108.65 on the hourly chart. Therefore, the pair is likely to face a strong selling interest near the 108.50 and 108.60 levels.

To start a decent upward move, the pair must settle above 108.60 and the 50 hourly SMA. If not, it could resume its decline below 108.30 and 108.20.
