EURUSD Outlook
The EURUSD attempted to push higher yesterday. After broke the 1.3200 resistance (23.6 Fibo from 1.6038 to 1.2333), the pair topped at 1.3289, but further bullish correction was rejected as the pair quickly fell, hit the bottom at 1.2804 and closed at 1.2875. Although I think we might see another bullish attempt, this upside rejection should keep the bearish scenario intact. My model is mixed with downside bias. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.3006. Initial support at 1.2735 followed by 1.2590.

EURUSD Daily Supports and Resistances:

  • S1= 1.2686
  • S2= 1.2498
  • S3= 1.2192
  • R1= 1.3180
  • R2= 1.3486
  • R3= 1.3674

GBPUSD Outlook
The GBPUSD failed to maintain bullish momentum yesterday. The pair attempted to push higher, topped at 1.6670 but closed lower at 1.6371. This upside failure should keep the major bearish scenario intact, but in this volatile market we might see another bullish attempt as CCI also in oversold area on weekly and monthly chart. My model is mixed with downside bias. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.6408. Initial support at 1.6215 followed by 1.6035.

GBPUSD Daily Supports and Resistances:

  • S1= 1.6164
  • S2= 1.5957
  • S3= 1.5704
  • R1= 1.6624
  • R2= 1.6624
  • R3= 1.7084

USDJPY Outlook
The USDJPY continued it’s bullish correction yesterday. The pair topped at 99.14 and closed at 98.63. However the pair was traded lower early today in Asian session around 98.30 at the time I wrote this comment. My model is mixed with neutral bias in nearest term, but with upside bias in longer term. Immediate support is seen at 97.60 followed by 96.80. CCI in neutral area on daily chart.

USDJPY Daily Supports and Resistances:

  • S1= 97.58
  • S2= 96.54
  • S3= 95.76
  • R1= 99.40
  • R2= 100.18
  • R3= 101.22

USDCHF Outlook
The USDCHF failed to maintain the bearish momentum yesterday. The pair topped at 1.1478 and closed at 1.1425. This fact should keep the major bullish scenario intact. Only a consistent move below 1.1250 could trigger further bearish corrections. Immediate support is seen at 1.1375 followed by 1.1325. Initial resistance at 1.1478 (yesterday’s high) followed by 1.1550. CCI in neutral area on daily chart.

USDCHF Daily Supports and Resistances:

  • S1= 1.1258
  • S2= 1.1092
  • S3= 1.0982
  • R1= 1.1534
  • R2= 1.1644
  • R3= 1.1810

EURUSD Outlook
The EURUSD continued it’s bullish momentum yesterday. The pair topped at 1.2991 and closed at 1.2951. Early today in Asian session the pair was traded higher around 1.3060 at the time I wrote this comment. This fact should open the door for a further upside correction scenario towards 1.3200 (23.6% Fibonacci retracement from 1.6038 to 1.2333). My model is mixed with upside bias. Immediate support is seen at 1.2920 followed by 1.2810. CCI just cross -100 line up on daily chart suggesting a potential bullish view.

GBPUSD Outlook
The Sterling also continued it’s recovery against Greenback yesterday. The pair topped at 1.6474 and closed at 1.6360.

EURUSD Outlook
The EURUSD made a significant upside correction yesterday (It’s about time huh? :-) ). The pair topped at 1.2835 and closed at 1.2816. Early today in Asian session the pair was traded softly lower. CCI about to cross -100 line up on daily chart suggesting a potential further upside movement. However, although further upside momentum might continue today, I think we should see any upside movement as a consolidation/correction and long trade positions are not recommended at this phase. Be patient. The major trend is still bearish. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.3006 followed by 1.3200 (23.6% Fibonacci retracement from 1.6038 to 1.2333). Initial support at 1.2690 followed by 1.2590.

  • R3= 1.3497

GBPUSD Outlook
The GBPUSD also made a significant upside correction yesterday. The pair topped at 1.6037 and closed at 1.6021. We need this upside correction as CCI already In extreme oversold area on monthly chart. We also should see this current upside momentum as consolidation/correction move. CCI about to cross -100 line up on daily chart, suggesting a potential upside momentum. However, long trade positions are not recommended at this phase. Be patient. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.6141 followed by 1.6408.

  • S1= 1.5601
  • S2= 1.5182

USDJPY Outlook
After an indecisive movement on Monday, the USDJPY was corrected higher yesterday. The pair made a huge movement of more than 700 pips, topped at 99.68 and closed at 98.15. However the pair was traded lower early today in Asian session around 97.30 at the time I wrote this comment. My model is mixed but still with downside bias as I see this bullish movement only as a correction of the major bearish trend. Be patient at this phase. Immediate resistance is seen at 99.68 (yesterday’s high). Initial support at 96.80 followed by 95.80. CCI in overbought area and heading down on 4h chart suggesting downside pressures.

  • S2= 89.78
  • S3= 86.92
  • R1= 101.00

  • R3= 108.04

USDCHF Outlook
The USDCHF continued it’s soft lower correction yesterday. The pair bottomed at 1.1508 and closed at 1.1526. My model is mixed with neutral bias, but we  are still in bullish outlook in longer term. Immediate support is seen at 1.1480 followed by 1.1375. Initial resistance at 1.1655. CCI just cross 100 line down on daily chart suggesting downside pressures.
