    Technical Checks For USD/JPY, GBP/JPY, NZD/JPY & CAD/JPY: 19.04.2018

    Given the USDJPY’s sustained trading above fortnight-old ascending trend-line, the pair is likely to challenge the 107.85-90 horizontal-resistance, which if broken could escalate its recovery towards 108.45 and the 108.90 north-side numbers. If prices keep rising after 108.90, the 109.30 and the 109.80 can offer intermediate halts during its rally to 110.50.

    EUR/GBP U-Shaped Bottom Hints Potential Bullish Continuation

    The EUR/GBP has broken through the descending trendline and we can see a potential for bullish continuation. Another cue is the U-shaped bottom that has been formed exactly at W L3 support. 0.8688-98 is the POC zone for potential bounces. Targets are 0.8739 and 0.8770. Only if 0.8770 breaks we might see Monthly (M) Pivots as next targets. Have in mind that EUR/GBP is both EUR and GBP news dependent, so any important news could spike the price in both directions, but generally the intraday trend is up.
