    EURJPY - Intraday - We look to Sell a break of 130.00 (stop at 130.35)

    Posted Mixed Daily results for the last 8 days. A Fibonacci confluence area is located at 130.26. There is no clear indication that the upward move is coming to an end. Bias is mildly bearish today but we need to see a break of 130.03 to confirm the downward pressure.
    Our profit targets will be 129.20 and 128.50

    Resistance: 130.26 / 130.75 / 131.00
    Support: 130.03 / 127.74 / 128.48

    USDCAD - Intraday - We look to Buy at 1.2525 (stop at 1.2485)

    The rally was sold and the dip bought resulting in mild net losses yesterday. Posted Mixed Daily results for the last 4 days. Trades within an intraday channel formation - high 1.2620 low 1.2508. Preferred trade is to buy on dips. Although the anticipated move higher is corrective, it does offer ample risk/reward today.

    USDJPY - Intraday - We look to Sell at 112.50 (stop at 112.80)

    Closed the day little net changed. The selloff has posted a correction count on the daily chart. Expect trading to remain mixed and volatile. RSI (relative strength indicator) is flat and reading close to 50 (mid-point) highlighting the fact that we are non- trending. Rallies continue to attract sellers. Further downside is expected although we prefer to set shorts at our bespoke resistance levels at 112.50, resulting in improved risk/reward.
    Our profit targets will be 111.80 and 111.50

    Resistance: 112.50 / 130.10 / 112.84
    Support: 111.78 / 111.47 / 110.20

    USDCHF - Intraday - We look to Sell at 0.9590 (stop at 0.9630)

    Selling pressure from 0.9624 resulted in all the initial daily gains being overturned. Trading within a Bearish Channel formation. The trend of lower lows is located at 0.9492. The selloff has posted an exhaustion count on the intraday chart. Immediate signals are hard to interpret. The medium term bias is neutral. Preferred trade is to sell into rallies.

The 161.8% Fibonacci extension is located at 1.2930 from 1.3126 to 1.3005. Preferred trade is to sell into rallies. A break of bespoke support at 1.2950, and the move lower is already underway.
