USD/PHP Technical Analysis – Uptrend Resumes

Philippine Peso prices broke above resistance at 53.74 (June, July, early September highs), signaling what could be resumption of the dominant near-term uptrend since early August. USD/PHP is also supported by a rising line from late August. The next target could be the 61.8% Fibonacci extension at 54.12, a push above that exposes the 78.6% level at 54.49. A descent through support could see the pair testing 53.24.

USD/SGD Technical Analysis – June Trend Line Eyed?

USD/SGD prices experienced a breakout as expected and it seems that the pair’s next leg could be lower. An Evening Star bearish reversal candlestick pattern emerged after a descent through the near-term rising trend line from late August. However, the pair remains upheld by horizontal resistance now support at 1.3745. The Singapore Dollar could eye the rising trend line from June should that area give way amidst negative RSI divergence as well. It warns that USD/SGD’s progress higher is running out of momentum.
