CAD/JPY: Very important technical level at 94.10

A clean break above 94.10 would suggest a double-bottom pattern with lows at a 38.2% retracement level at 90.75.

GBP/JPY: Starting to like the look of this pair again

Risk trades hard to call at the moment

It’s no surprise to see the ‘euphoria’ regarding the Turkish rate rise quickly evaporate and now we are back in no-man’s land in many of the JPY and CHF […]

USD/JPY: Looks set to test 105.50 yet again

Major technical resistance at 105.50 (61.8% retracement) is still the main topside target in USD/JPY.

EUR/JPY should also be interesting near 143.10/20. If a top can form there on the […]

Yen showing modest strength but unable to build on yesterday’s gains

  • USD/JPY will look toppish so long as the long-term Fibo at 105.50 continues to hold firm; a break below previous highs near 103.70 will likely cause further trimming of […]
