EUR/USD Current price: 1.3453
The EUR/USD posted gains during the 2/12 session, pushing above a brief consolidation range that had resistance at 1.3430. However, it is closing the session unable to push above a fallinng channel since February seen in the intra-day charts. A push above 1.35 will probably be needed to bring about some bullish outlook toward the 1.3595-1.36 area, which was a previous pivot.
Support Levels: 1.3271 1.3317 1.3383
Resistance Levels: 1.3495 1.3541 1.3607
GBP/USD Current price: 1.5674View Live Chart for the USD/JPY (select the currency)
GBP/USD pulled back during the 2/12 US session after making new lows for 2013. The bearish outlook still remains with the 1.55 handle, 78.6% retracement and common lows the June-July consolidation period. A break above 1.59 is required to neutralize the bearish outlook.
Support Levels: 1.5489 1.5530 1.5601

USD/JPY Current price: 93.47
The USD/JPY retreated back below 94.00 during the 2/12 US session, but held above 93.00 which maintains the bullish stance. At this point, a slide below 92.00 will be required to show topping action and usher in a bearish correction scenario. Otherwise, the 95.00 area near the 2010 high remains in sight.
Support Levels: 91.21 92.07 92.68
Resistance Levels: 94.15 95.01 95.62
AUD/USD: Current price: 1.0310
AUD/USD pulled back to 1.0320 during the 2/12 session. This was actually an outside bar. After a failed outside bar from last Friday(2/8), this shows a real battle of bulls and bears. It should be noted that during the fall from the 1.06 area, the strongest bullish correction has been above 90 pips but under 100. Today's price action was a 94 pip pullback. A pullback more than 100 pips could be a sign that bears are losing control, especially if there is a push above 1.0350, which opens up the 1.0450-1.0475 resistance pivot area. Otherwise, AUD/USD remains bearish with the 1.0150-1.0165 support area in sight. (As I complete this report, the AUD/USD indeed pushes above the 100-pip pullback mark, so beware of the next challenge in the 1.0450-75 area.)
Support Levels: 1.0150 1.0188 1.0262
Resistence Levels: 1.0374 1.0412 1.0486
