That said, any close above the high end of the zone could send USDCHF towards 0.9930. further close above this level could resume bullish price action towards the vicinity of 1.0008-15. Nonetheless, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart should be kept in focus.

From the daily chart, we notice yesterday USD/JPY moved to a lower trading zone 105.50 -107.30 eyeing a test of the low end of the zone. Although, the price needs first to clear the weekly support level and area underscored on the chart.

Further close below the low end of the zone could press USDJPY towards the vicinity of 104.81-77. See the chart (zoomed in) to know more about the lower trading zone/s with the weekly support level to consider in a further bearish move.

On the flip-side, any close above the high end of the zone could reverse the pair’s direction sending it towards 108.61. In that scenario the weekly and daily resistance area and levels underlined on the chart should be watched closely.
