EUR/USD Current price: 1.3427
Market is slowly regaining its confidence in the EU, after past week post ECB kneejerk: yields differentials shrank today, and along with G7 statement, are supporting EUR/USD gains. However, the pair remains unable to gather upside momentum: the hourly chart shows indicators heading south back near their midlines after a daily high of 1.3465. In the 4 hours chart price stands above a still bearish 20 SMA, while indicators hover around their midlines with no clear direction at the time being. Beyond the daily high, 1.3485 is the key resistance level to follow as only above this last the pair will be able to set again a clearer bullish trend. On the downside, break below 1.3350 will open doors for a retest of the daily ascendant trend line, today around 1.3270

The USD/JPY eased some back below 94.00, although the dominant bullish trend remains intact.

Price may attempt a test of the level but buying around it seems the best short term strategy, as it converges with 200 SMA in the mentioned time frame. In the 4 hours chart, technical indicators remain in positive territory, with a shy bullish slope, helping keep the downside limited
