    USDCHF - Cautiously Bearish & Sell .9900 Rally. Stop .9935
    The neutral range set in yesterday's report was unthreatened as the consolidation in USDCHF stretched to a 5th day in a row. That price action came against a background of a rising Keltner channel – although that channel is beginning to flatten - and above a Marabuzo line created on Oct 3rd. However the upside stalling has been translated into a more significant decline in Asia, and although an early positive reaction is probable, the immediate bias is now negative.
    We lok to Sell at .9870 and .9900
    Stop is .9935 bid
    Targets - .9840, .9819 or even .9790

    EURUSD - Temporarily Bullish & Buy 1.1470 Dip. Stop 1.1439, Tuesday
    In line with this week's bearish outlook, selling pressure around last Wednesday’s Marabuzo line proved important. Selling interest was renewed Monday with the decline yielding our first downside target and new 7 week lows. But although net losses were posted, there was a significant profit taking bounce from the day’s base that is enough to give intraday bullish bias.
    So we look to Buy in 1.1490/95 area and at 1.1470
    The stop is 1.1439 offered
    Targets - 1.1524, 1.1549 or even 1.1569

    GBPUSD - Temporary rebound to extend.
    Like in EURUSD an Asian extension of Wednesday’s deterioration proved temporary. Europe attracted profit taking and CABLE steadily improved during the bulk of the rest of the day. The bounce here was more pronounced and although not strong enough to test the 13 day line, a close near the highs mean intraday signals for sentiment are bullish.

    GBPUSD - CABLE - Upside rejection targets 1.2948
    An early rally yesterday traded near to our weekly Sell Rally point, Thursday’s Marabuzo line. But selling interest re-emerged marginally below that level and the market closed with only minor net movement. This ‘Doji’ ended a sequence of 3 down days but ensured that CABLE remained below the 13 day mvg avg. This price action does not create strong intraday signals for sentiment but this morning’s call is still a Sell

    GBPJPY - Supported by Key Average, gains to extend
    Wednesday’s decline deepened initially yesterday – on the back of JPY strength like in AUDJPY. But levels below the 200 day average, and near the 13 day line attracted fresh buyers. The resulting rally meant that GBPJPY closed with only minor net movement – indecisive price action. But although that fact, coupled with stalling at the 200 day line, adds a note of caution, the downside rejection is expected to impact on price action.

    GBPUSD - Weak rally points Lower
    Thursday’s report highlighted a lack of clear direction for sentiment. That proved valid as price action was limited in range and net movement. Wednesday’s 14 month low was not retested but a profit taking attempt was limited and the highs not held. Taken in the context of a hugging of the lower end of a negative Keltner channel, we look for further downside.
    Sell in 1.2725/30 area and any 1.2755 rally.
    Stop is 1.2791 bid.

    EURGBP - Bounce above key average to extend higher
    For a 3rd day in a row EURGBP probed below the 13 day mvg avg. For a 3rd day prices below that point found buyers. Price action was more subdued than the last 4 days – in fact, all trading was contained by the previous day’s range. This price action does not create strong signals for sentiment going into Thursday but the downside failure, an end to a sequence of 4 down days and further demand in Asia means intraday sentiment is positive.

    USDCAD - Negative reversal through key average
    Tuesday’s report highlighted underlying positive sentiment but a lack of a buy signal. That proved justified as our Buy at 1.3073 was virtually the low of the day. USDCAD still found further selling at the end of the day in a move that took prices to test the 13 day line. That important point was only marginally breached but, despite minor gains in Asia, is enough to leave our intraday technical studies negative.
    We look to Sell in 1.3075/80 area and at 1.3105

    EURUSD, Tracking Keltner channel lower
    In line with this week's bearish call, early price action Monday saw EURUSD sold to the most negative point for 13 months. But the lows were not entirely maintained as some profit taking developed at oversold extremes. The rally was a weak one and a 3rd down day in a row was posted. Further rally attempts cannot be ruled out but sentiment is assessed as negative.
