Technical outlook

USD/JPY is moving inside the ascending channel. The pair is getting closer to the lower trend line at 109.00, which it will struggle to cross. Thus, we might expect a reverse up from the support zone of 108.80-109.00. On the way up, the pair may meet the resistance levels at the 100- and 50- day moving averages of 109.60 and 110.00.

Let’s look at gold. It has broken through the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of $1770 but retraced to it. It should be just a natural sell-off after the breakout. Gold may rally up further to the 100-day moving average of $1805 and the next Fibo level of $1825.

EUR/USD has reversed down from the resistance level of 1.1800. If it drops below the late July lows of 1.1750,  the pair may fall to the low of August 11 at 1.1700. On the flip side, if the pair manages to break 1.1800, the pair may jump to the 50-day moving average of 1.1870.
