The US Dollar is at a potentially pivotal zone of support versus the Japanese Yen but eyes key resistance against the Euro. Here are the levels we’re watching.

The Euro continues to hold below significant volume-based resistance starting at $1.12, and continued failure leaves our focus to the downside. Near-term support is the psychologically significant $1.10 mark, while a break below targets congestion and volume-based support near $1.09.

GBPUSD

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

The British Pound has bounced sharply off of recent lows and congestion support near $1.54, and further resistance remains at a major volume-based congestion level near $1.5650. Support remains near $1.54.

USDJPY

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

The US Dollar has recently failed near notable congestion and volume-based resistance versus the Yen starting at ¥123.50, and continued failure at these levels leaves support near comparable volume levels near ¥121.50.

AUDUSD

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

The Australian Dollar continues to hold just above important multi-year lows near the $0.7400 mark, and indeed it seems as though it is establishing minor volume-based support in this soon. That said overall momentum clearly favors the downside, and we would need to see a move above important congestion starting near $0.7550 and extending through $0.7800 to favor a larger trend reversal.

GBPJPY

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

The Sterling has traded above notable volume-based resistance versus the Japanese Yen near ¥190.50, and attention now turns to recent congestion and price gap at ¥193.50. Support remains at ¥191.50 and eventually ¥188.

EURJPY

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

US Dollar Trades at Make or Break Levels versus the Euro, Yen

Data source: FXCM Real Directional Volume Indicator, Chart source: R. Prepared by David Rodriguez

The Euro has failed to move convincingly above key volume-based resistance at ¥137, and a continued hold below leaves the psychologically significant ¥135 mark as near-term support. Trading above ¥137 would leave the psychologically significant ¥140 mark as the next logical target.

USDCHF

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

Data source: FXCM Real Directional Volume Indicator, Chart source: R. Prepared by David Rodriguez

The US Dollar continues to hold below important volume-based resistance of SFr0.9500 versus the Swiss Franc, and failure leaves near-term support at volume-based congestion near 0.9300. A topside break exposes a volume peak starting at SFr 0.9600.

USDCAD

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

US Dollar Trades at Make or Break Levels versus the Euro, Yen

Data source: FXCM Real Directional Volume Indicator, Chart source: R. Prepared by David Rodriguez

The US Dollar trades just barely below post-financial crisis highs of C$1.2800 versus the Canadian Dollar, and failure to trade above leaves focus on major volume-based support starting near the $1.2600 mark. A topside break exposes the psychologically significant C$1.3000 mark

NZDUSD

Total Buy Volume Executed, Total Sell Volume Executed, Net Volume Executed (Buy-Sell)

Length of bar indicates the sum of Buy and Sell volume.

The New Zealand Dollar traded below all notable volume-based support levels has also broken July, 2010 lows near $0.6800, but the pair has most recently stopped and reversed just above the $0.6600 mark. Former support now becomes resistance at $0.6800, and to the downside we see the May, 2010 trough of $0.6550 as the next key price floor.
