Trading Outlook for EURUSD, USDJPY, Gold Price & More

Trading Outlook for EURUSD, USDJPY, Gold Price & More

Paul Robinson, Strategist

The Euro is positioned for lower prices, as a test of the March/April lows looks to be just around the corner; from there we will need to see if support in this low-vol environment keeps it afloat or an extended move can develop. USDJPY has been very quiet but looks poised to continue higher towards long-term resistance lines. Gold is out of a topping pattern but has a sizable line of support to break before more bearish momentum can be realized.

Technical Highlights:

  • EURUSD looks headed for March/April lows
  • USDJPY has room to run higher towards long-term resistance
  • Gold price is near August trend-line, last line of support

Fresh Q2 Forecasts are out for major markets and currencies. Check them out on the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

EURUSD looks headed for March/April lows

The Euro is undergoing a smallish bounce after getting hit hard on Thursday from a channel/bear-flag formation. Looking for a bit more weakness down towards the March/April lows near or under 11200 before another bounce may develop. It will require some strong momentum and a break of levels before consideration of an extended move can be taken seriously in the currently low volatility environment.

USDJPY has room to run higher towards long-term resistance

USDJPY has been trading mostly sideways with a slight downward bias the past few sessions. This smacks of corrective and sets the pair up for another move higher. Confluent support was met in overnight trade and with the push off of it as long as the minor swing low holds, then the 11265/11335 area will be targeted from here.

Gold price is near August trend-line, last line of support

Gold is caught between a rock and a hard place as it broke price support recently in the ongoing descending wedge-like price action we are seeing. There is solid trend-line support rising up from August which needs to be broken next to clear the way for another leg lower. It is anticipated that it will break, but a small bounce may first develop before it does. This could be a good thing as it creates a minor swing low to operate off of with shorts on a break below trend-line support.
