EURJPY is now in a range between 116.100 and 112. After a test of 100 SMA and rejection EURJPY is near the middle of the range. Until we see a break of this range we are on sidelines. No changes in view. If longs are initiated here SL should be below 114.300.
Similar to the AUDJPY the pair broke the falling trend but is still with in a wedge between 73.400 and 78.000 level. The upside resistance 78.000 should be broken for the continuation. We prefer not to take action before this break.
The pair broke the downtrend line and 200 SMA to the upside and as long as 79.800 level holds we see upside continuation. If longs are initiated here SL should be below 79.800 targeting 86 on the upside.
USDSEK made a break of long term highs 8.7800 level which is now valid support. The pair is now in a strong uptrend. Break above 9.1000 is needed for upside continuation. Regarding USDSEK positive correlation with EURUSD here we prefer short EURUSD rather then USDSEK long.
USDNOK has reversed medium term downtrend and is now breaking Inverse H&S bullish formation with neckline at 8.3300 level. The target higher is 8.49000 at least with SL below 8.3300.
Liquidity is back in GBP pairs and GBPAUD is open for the upside now. First resistance is 100 SMA 1.7000 and for a complete reversal this level should be broken. SL should be below 1.6600 on initiated longs here.
Similar to GBPAUD the pair has on the way to test 100 SMA (red line) 1.7896 level. Price action when this level is reached will give us further directions for the trade. Sidelines for now.
Crosses are simply a measure of the relative strength of an individual currency against the dollar. Crosses are distinguished by the fact that they do not include the dollar as either the numerator or the denominator of the pair. As such, they offer traders a tremendous opportunity to make far more nuanced bets in the currency market than the simple pro- or anti-dollar trade.
What makes crosses especially interesting to currency traders is the fact that they can provide much cleaner trend or range signals which will be unaffected by the day-to-day oscillations of the greenback.
