    EUR/USD

    The euro remains at the back foot after repeated attempts at 1.3400 failed and subsequent easing broke below important 1.3300 support, previous resistance and 4h 20 day EMA. This opens prospect for further correction, as hourly structure is negative and 4h indicators continue to slide. The reversal so far retraced 38.2% of 1.3037/1.3401 upleg, bringing immediate risk at 1.3247 higher platform, reinforced by 4h 55 day EMA, loss of which would prompt extension towards psychological 1.3200 support. Hourly 20/55 EMA’s bearish crossover at 1.3325, pressures the price and offers solid resistance, along with 1.3335, previous range floor.

    Res: 1.3300, 1.3325, 1.3335, 1.3356
    Sup: 1.3262, 1.3247, 1.3220, 1.3200

    GBP/USD

    Cable lost ground again, following repeated attempt at 1.6100 barrier failure, to return back to 1.6030 support and risk test of more significant 1.6000/1.5990 near-term base, reinforced by daily Ichimoku cloud base.. Studies on 4h chart turned negative and see potential for further weakness, as the price holds below 20/55 day EMA’s, with break below 1.5990 to expose 1.5960, Fib 76.4% of 1.5826/1.6380 and 1.5900, 200 day MA. Only lift above 1.6100 would provide near-term relief.

    Res: 1.6044, 1.6079, 1.6100, 1.6121
    Sup: 1.6006, 1.5991, 1.5960, 1.5900

    USD/JPY

    The pair continues to move lower for the third day, on corrective pullback from 89.66. Loss of strong support at 88.40 is seen as a trigger, as the price dents next one at 88.00, retracing 61.8% of 86.81/89.66 upleg at 87.90. Dominating negative tone on hourly chart and 4h studies breaking into negative territory, keep the downside favored, with daily indicators starting to point lower, of overbought zone that additionally supports near-term bears. Holding below 88.00 handle, would likely open way towards 87.00 and more significant 86.81, 09 Jan low. Any bounce higher is seen capped at 89.00 zone for now.

    Res: 88.28, 88.74, 88.90, 89.08
    Sup: 87.90, 87.48, 87.00, 86.81

    USD/CHF

    The pair extends recovery rally, clearing key near-term barrier at 0.9300, 04 Jan high that confirm near-term base at 0.9100 and opens way for stronger gains. With gains reaching 0.9330 so far, immediate focus lies at 0.9345, Fib 61.8% of 0.9511/0.9077 descend and 0.9381, 07 Dec 2012 high, to possibly look for test of psychological 0.9400 barrier. Overbought near-term studies, however, see pause in recent gains, with corrective easing facing support at 0.9272 and dips expected to hold at/above 0.9250, Fib 38.2% / 55 day EMA, to keep the bullish bias.

    Res: 0.9330, 0.9345, 0.9381, 0.9400
    Sup: 0.9293, 0.9372, 0.9246, 0.9220
