EUR/USD Intraday: under pressure.

Pivot: 1.1405

Our preference: short @ 1.1390 with targets @ 1.1370 & 1.1350 in extension.

Alternative scenario: above 1.1405 look for further upside with 1.1430 & 1.1455 as targets.

Comment: as long as 1.1405 is resistance, look for choppy price action with a bearish bias.

 

 

USD/JPY Intraday: the bias remains bullish.

Pivot: 113.00

Our preference: long positions above 113.00 with targets at 113.35 & 113.60 in extension.

Comment: the RSI shows upside momentum.

 

 

GBP/USD Intraday: intraday support around 1.2950.

Pivot: 1.2950

Our preference: long positions above 1.2950 with targets at 1.3050 & 1.3090 in extension.

Alternative scenario: below 1.2950 look for further downside with 1.2905 & 1.2855 as targets.

Comment: a support base at 1.2950 has formed and has allowed for a temporary stabilisation.

 

 

EUR/GBP Intraday: consolidation.

Pivot: 0.8785

Our preference: short positions below 0.8785 with targets at 0.8755 & 0.8730 in extension.

USD/ZAR intraday: the upside prevails as long as 14.2360 is support
