EUR/USD Current price: 1.3052View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
Tuesday was not about forex, but about stocks: US indexes soared with the DJIA breaching above its previous all time high and even closing the day at new records. Across the forex board was more of a position adjustment and ranging, ahead of European Central Banks and US Payrolls by the end of the week. Fundamental data was overall positive in both shores of the Atlantic, yet the EUR/USD traded range bound most of the day, unable to set a trend. Early Asian session, the hourly chart shows a quite limited bullish tone, as price stands above 20 SMA while indicators lay above their midlines, showing not much strength at the time being. The 1.30/31 range will probably extend ahead of ECB on Thursday, with the downside seen limited by market positive mood.
Support levels: 1.3010 1.2980 1.2940

The EUR/JPY continues to trade in between Fibonacci levels still neutral according to the hourly chart. 100 and 200 SMA’s converge in the same area, reflecting the lack of direction of the pair, although price stands above them, while 100 one approaches the larger one, suggesting certain buying interest around. The pair will likely lead the session, with the upside favored if local share markets suffer an optimism contagion, with a break above 122.00 favoring a run towards 122.60 area, 61.8% retracement of its latest daily fall.
Support levels: 121.20 120.90 120.40
Resistance levels: 122.00 122.60 123.10
USD/JPY Current price: 93.33View Live Chart for the USD/JPY (select the currency)
The USD/JPY managed to bounce from an intraday low of 92.90, but the upside still looks tough as there is not much buying interest around. The hourly chart shows indicators flat in positive territory, although 100 SMA crossed downside up 200 one, which points for further gains toward 93.80 key resistance level. While risk appetite will likely prevent the pair from sliding beyond the 92.80 support area, gains are also seen limited by 94.00/10 price zone, where sellers align now.
Support levels: 92.80 92.40 92.00
Resistance levels: 93.40 93.80 94.10
