    EURUSD :
    HIGH 1.37928 LOW 1.37663 BID 1.37732 ASK 1.37735 CHANGE -0.06% TIME 08 : 44:43


    TREND CONDITION : Upward penetration

    MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

    Upwards scenario: EURUSD gained momentum on the upside recently and likely resume its uptrend formation. Clearance of our next resistive structure at 1.3794 (R1) would open way towards to our initial target at 1.3821 (R2) and any further market rise would then be targeting 1.3846 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the downside bearish pressure might push the price below the support at 1.3750 (S1). Further downside extension would open road towards to next target at 1.3727 (S2) and any further losses would then be limited to 1.3704 (S3) mark.

    Resistance Levels: 1.3794, 1.3821, 1.3846
    Support Levels: 1.3750, 1.3727, 1.3704

    GBPUSD :
    HIGH 1.62567 LOW 1.62101 BID 1.62164 ASK 1.62173 CHANGE -0.11% TIME 08 : 44:44


    TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration

    Upwards scenario: Possibility of ascending structure is seen above the fractal level at 1.6259 (R1). Break here is required to clear the way towards to higher targets at 1.6286 (R2) and 1.6315 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, recovery phase might commence below the important support level at 1.6194 (S1). Break here is required to validate our targets at 1.6167 (S2) and 1.6139 (S3) later on today.

    Resistance Levels: 1.6259, 1.6286, 1.6315
    Support Levels: 1.6194, 1.6167, 1.6139

    USDJPY :
    HIGH 98.195 LOW 97.264 BID 97.440 ASK 97.443 CHANGE -0.71% TIME 08 : 44:45


    TREND CONDITION : Down trend

    Upwards scenario: Possible upwards formation is limited to resistive measure at 97.56 (R1). A break above it would suggest next intraday target 97.73 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect price increase towards to final resistance at 97.89 (R3). Downwards scenario: Clearance of our support at 97.25 (S1) is required to determine negative intraday bias and enable lower target at 97.09 (S2) and then any further market depreciation would suggest final aim at 96.92 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 97.56, 97.73, 97.89
    Support Levels: 97.25, 97.09, 96.92
