EURUSD Outlook
Remember my EURUSD analysis on May 23th? (just scroll down if you forget) I said that up to the third week of May the pair had significant bullish momentum and could continue throughout the rest of the month and might targeting higher bullish targets: 1.4173 (target 1), 1.4350 (target 2), 1.4716 (target 3). So far, my bullish scenario is still on the right track. After break above 1.4050 area yesterday, the pair continued it’s bullish momentum, topped at 1.4167 and closed at 1.4136. We can say that the first bullish target, 1.4173 (50% Fibo Retracement of 1.6037 – 1.2327) has been hit yesterday, so my attention now is on the second target, 1.4350 area which hopefully can be reached on the upcoming week. We might have some downside corrections next week since 1.4173 area is an important resistance of major movement, but as long as the pair stay above 1.4050 we can expect further bullish continuation scenario. See you guys next week and have a great weekend!

EURUSD Outlook
After corrected lower in the last three days, the EURUSD had a bullish momentum yesterday. This is not a surprise for me since the medium outlook remains bullish. On h4 chart below we have rectangle formation (1.4050 – 1.3850) indicating consolidation. Be patient. We are still in no trading zone in nearest term. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.3981 (yesterday’s high). Break above that area could trigger further bullish momentum testing key resistance level 1.4050. Break above that level should continue the bullish scenario towards 1.4173. Initial support at 1.3850 and 1.3736. CCI in neutral area on h4 chart.

  • S2= 1.3715
  • S3= 1.3638
  • R1= 1.4016
  • R2= 1.4093
  • R3= 1.4205

GBPUSD Outlook
GBPUSD made another indecisive movement yesterday. On daily chart below we can see that the pair has been showing no clear direction in the last four days. If we look at weekly chart, we will see a Doji formation during this week. I think we are still in no trading zone. However the medium outlook remains bullish. Key resistance level at 1.6000. Consistent movement above that area should trigger further bullish momentum. Immediate support at 1.5850 followed by 1.5750. CCI about to cross the 100 line down suggesting a potential downside pressure.

  • R1= 1.6016
  • R2= 1.6092
  • R3= 1.6173

USDJPY Outlook
The USDJPY had significant bullish momentum yesterday. The pair break above key level 96.60/70, topped at 97.22 and closed at 96.83. The price need to stay consistently above 96.60/70 area in order to continue it’s bullish scenario towards 97.90 area. Movement below 96.60/70 would lead us into no trading zone. CCI in overbought area and heading down on h4 chart suggesting a potential downside pressure.

  • R3= 99.64

USDCHF Outlook
The USDCHF continued it’s bearish scenario yesterday, but still unable to move consistently below 1.0810 key support area. This fact keep us in no trading zone in nearest term. Break below 1.0810 could trigger further bearish momentum towards 1.0700 area. Immediate resistance is seen at 1.0870 – 1.0910 area. CCI in neutral area on h4 chart.

EURUSD Outlook
Yesterday I said about battle between buyers and sellers reflected on resistance line at 1.4050 and trendline support on hourly chart, and the battle was won by the sellers as the trendline support violated to the downside. This fact should trigger further bearish pressure testing key support level at 1.3736 area in nearest term. However, for me this is not the best time to trade since bullish outlook of medium term still intact and this bearish momentum still considered as counter trend movement/correction of the medium term trend. CCI just cross the 100 line down on daily chart suggesting a potential downside pressure.

EURUSD Daily Supports and Resistances:

  • S1= 1.3767

  • S3= 1.3592
  • R1= 1.3942
  • R2= 1.4058
  • R3= 1.4117

GBPUSD Outlook
After breakout from the rectangle area (1.5966), yesterday the GBPUSD had bullish momentum, topped at 1.6085 but the bullish power seemed very limited as the the pair closed lower at 1.5955. I think we are now back in the no trading zone. However, if the price consistently move above 1.6000 area today, we might see further upside pressure testing 1.6125 area. Immediate support is seen at 1.5922 (yesterday’s low). Break below that area could trigger further bearish pressure towards 1.5850 area. CCI just cross the 100 line down on h4 chart suggesting a potential downside pressure.

  • R2= 1.6150
  • R3= 1.6215

USDJPY Outlook
The USDJPY had moderate bullish momentum yesterday. We still have minor bullish channel seen on h4 chart with 96.60/70 resistance level to test. Immediate resistance is seen at 95.50. Break above that area could trigger further bullish momentum. Initial support at 94.50 area. CCI just cross the 100 line up on h4 chart suggesting a potential upside pressure.

  • R2= 95.98
  • R3= 96.48

USDCHF Outlook
The USDCHF was corrected higher yesterday. On hourly chart below we can see that after failed to break below 1.0810 support (triple bottom) the pair had a bullish momentum. The key level at this phase is 1.0930. Break above that area could trigger further bullish momentum towards 1.1010. CCI just cross the -100 line up on daily chart suggesting a potential upside pressure.

EURUSD Outlook
The EURUSD attempted to continue it’s bearish correction yesterday, bottomed at 1.3859 but further downside momentum was rejected as the pair whipsawed to the upside and closed higher at 1.3983. On hourly chart below we can see that the trendline support did a good job preventing further bearish attack. At this phase, it seems like the battle between buyers and sellers is technically reflected on 1.4050 resistance line and the trendline support. Break above 1.4050 could trigger further bullish continuation towards 1.4173 while break below the trendline support could trigger further bearish correction testing 1.3825 and 1.3736 key support level area. I think we still in no trading zone in nearest term but remain bullish in medium term. CCI in neutral area on h4 chart.

Breakout to the upside of the rectangle area (1.5966) could trigger further bullish continuation towards 1.6050 area. Immediate support is seen at 1.5880 followed by 1.5830. CCI about to cross the 100 line up on hourly chart suggesting a potential upside pressure.

The USDJPY didn’t make significant movement yesterday. It looks like the pair is consolidating now.

Please have a look at the charts below:

eurdaily4

The major trend is still bullish as we can see on the chart above. I have identified the most activy cycle within this major trend which is known as the current

eur4hr

On the 4hr chart above I have identified the most active cycle within the current trend. This cycle is known as the 60minute trend – indicated with the green lines

eur1hr1

Here we can see the bullish 60minute trend is all it’s glory. As long as this one remains bullish we will have a bullish probability..

Of course, the 1 hour stochastic is bearish at this stage and therefore we have a no trade zone. This means that market rhythm is trending lower.

I will therefore stand aside until the 1hour stochastic gives me a bullish cross. Never trade against the trend..

Good luck

Johan

EURUSD Outlook
The EURUSD bullish momentum was paused yesterday. I think this is a normal correction after significant bullish momentum last week. We might have further downside correction, but in medium term outlook as long as the pair stay above 1.3736 area, the scenario remains bullish. The bias is neutral is in nearest term. Immediate support is remains at 1.3950 followed by 1.3825. Initial resistance at 1.4050. Break above that area could trigger further bullish momentum towards 1.4173. CCI in overbought area and heading down on daily chart suggesting a potential downside pressure.

The GBPUSD bullish momentum also paused yesterday. The rising wedge formation on hourly chart below has been violated to the downside indicating potential further downside correction.
