EUR/USD has turned up from the 50-day MA at 1.1715 yesterday. This is a sign that buyers are strong. Still, the short-term resistance line limits the upside at 1.1870.
USD/JPY: the USD is weak again
TP1 111.85 TP2 111.6 TP3 109.9
On the daily chart of USD/JPY, a break of the support at 112.85 and an exit from the upward channel may mean an implementation of reversal 1-2-3 and "Three Indians" patterns. At the same time, risks of an implementation of "Shark" and "Crab" patterns with 88.6% and 161.8% targets will increase.
On H1, if the pair reaches the 88.6% target of the "Shark" pattern, risks of the pullback and an implementation of "Three Indians" and "Broadening wedge" patters will increase. A test of the support at 112.85 will be important.
USD/JPY is declining for the fifth day in a row. When the pair fell below 105.00, it entered a new, lower range.
The resistance line is limiting USD/JPY on the upside and, unless the pair tries for a breakout (which anyway will meet resistance at 106.50 and 106.80), the easiest path for it will be to go down.
