MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EUR/USD maintained a negative near-term tone though recovery action is possible above the next visible resistance at 1.3663 (R1). Clearance here might initiate bullish pressure and validate our next targets at 1.3678 (R2) and 1.3691 (R3). Downwards scenario: Yesterday session low offers key supportive barrier at 1.3631 (S1). Break here might provide sufficient momentum on the downside and expose our intraday targets at 1.3615 (S2) and 1.3600 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.3663, 1.3678, 1.3691
Support Levels: 1.3631, 1.3615, 1.3600

GBPUSD :
HIGH 1.63722 LOW 1.63502 BID 1.63527 ASK 1.63529 CHANGE 0.01% TIME 08 : 43:59

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Possible upwards formation is limited now to resistive measure at 1.6391 (R1). A break above it would suggest next intraday target at 1.6408 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect price increase towards to final resistance at 1.6424 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.6351 (S1), any penetration below it might activate downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.6337 (S2). Any further market decline would then be limited to 1.6324 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.6391, 1.6408, 1.6424
Support Levels: 1.6351, 1.6337, 1.6324

------------------
USDJPY :
HIGH 104.591 LOW 104.213 BID 104.44 ASK 104.442 CHANGE 0% TIME 08 : 43:59

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
TREND CONDITION : Up trend
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Market sentiment has improved for the bullish oriented traders. Fresh high formed today offers key resistance level at 104.60 (R1). In case of price appreciation above it our focus would be shifted to the higher targets at 104.83 (R2) and 105.05 (R3). Downwards scenario: Medium-term bias is clearly positive however possible progress below the initial support level at 104.09 (S1) might expose our intraday targets at 103.83 (S2) and then 103.54 (S3) in perspective.

Resistance Levels: 104.60, 104.83, 105.05
Support Levels: 104.09, 103.83, 103.54
