EUR/USD downside limited by critical 1.3000: bears may be in charge, but sentiment is not enough to start thinking of a stronger long term slide.

GBP/USD bulls’ hopes lost: Pound sub 1.70 against the greenback, fueled bearish potential for GBP/USD seen mostly under pressure for t the upcoming month.

USD/JPY bulls still dominating the pair: pressure eased over the USD/JPY, with bulls again been a strong majority in the short and longer view.

AUD/USD red, red and more red ahead: despite its latest strength, market players are sitting in the selling side of the pair, seeing levels of 0.90 and below for next quarter.

EUR/JPY probable bottom underway: the EUR/JPY is expected to maintain the range next week, but return north afterwards.
