Technical Outlook for USD/JPY, EUR/USD, Dow Jones, Gold Price & More

USD/JPY is running higher after posting a higher low, and on that is now working on building a triangle formation below resistance in the mid-11400s. The Euro is trading near the important 11300-line, an important inflection point to find resolution in days head. U.S. stocks bounced to start the week but that is all it looks like this will be before another round of selling hits. Gold is continuing to validate trend-line resistance, but the fact it has yet to turn down may be a positive sign.

Technical Highlights:

  • USD/JPY triangle building below big resistance
  • EUR/USD testing important support around 11300-line
  • Gold price struggling at trend-line resistance
  • Dow Jones to weaken again after early-week bounce

See the DailyFX Q4 Forecasts to find out where our team of analysts think your favorite markets and currencies are headed as the year quickly draws towards its conclusion.

USD/JPY triangle building below big resistance

USD/JPY bouncing the past few sessions is bringing into play the possibility of a symmetrical triangle. It would come at an interesting spot as the top of the triangle is at a significant area of resistance dating back to May of last year. The pattern needs a little more time to develop but presents potential at some point for a 300 pip or so move once it finally breaks out.

EUR/USD testing important support around 11300-line

EUR/USD is testing the 11300 line at the time of this writing. It’s a big spot which needs to hold if the Euro is to have a shot at a larger rebound off the monthly low. A possible inverse head-and-shoulders could form if a rally starts to develop soon, but a failure would have the monthly low and underside trend-line from a year-ago back in focus.

Gold price struggling at trend-line resistance

Gold is treading water right at the April trend-line, and with it not turning lower it increases the likelihood that it will trade higher. If it does, though, it won’t be long before another zone of resistance surrounding 1240 will come into play. Broadly speaking, even a breakout above all near-term resistance will still keep the precious metal in the confines of a developing bear-flag. However, it won’t be validated until the trend-line off the August low is broken.

Dow Jones to weaken again after early-week bounce

U.S. stocks started the week off bouncing, but that is about all it looks like at this time. A bid isn’t expected to last long, perhaps a fill of some large gaps from last week but interest in this corner is on being a seller not a buyer. The Dow has some decent support at its feet via the Feb 2016 t-line, Feb 2018 t-line, and October lows, but with the market weak and yet to show any signs of real fear it looks like those support levels won’t hold for long. Still looking for the early-year lows down to just under 24k before a meaningful bounce may develop.
