    Time running out for euro zone reforms - officials

    Time is running out for reforming the euro zone while the urgency of doing so for policymakers has been reduced due to a robust economic rebound in the single currency bloc, top European economic officials warned on Thursday. The 19 countries that share the euro are now enjoying the strongest growth in a decade after years of economic crisis that almost unravelled the euro zone. Top policymakers have argued that the euro zone should fix its remaining weaknesses while its economy is on the upturn so that it is better prepared for the next downturn.

    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. In case of the pullback, the 107.15 may become nearby rest for the pair ahead of highlighting the 106.90 TL, breaking which 106.60 & 106.10 shouldn’t be missed if holding short positions. Moreover, the 105.60 and the 105. ...

    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.
