The last two days of trading have been a wash.  Most of the majors are right where they began the week.  The exception to the rule is the USDJPY which moved higher today after a ratings downgrade from Fitch.  If this pair can hold onto its gains it could pickup momentum from this point.  All eyes will be on the Bank of England minutes in early European trading.  The cross is sitting on the 50 Fib heading into the New York close a hold of this level in early Asian trading and we could see a pop higher.  Other news of interest this evening is the JPY Rate Decision duw in early Asian trading.  As always keep your trades KEANE and play it safe.


EURUSD A Tale of Two Days

Consoidation has been the name of the game so far this week for the EURUSD.  The pair briefly touched price support at 1.2815 in late trading monday and has since been on a one way track lower.  Support is still just below at daily price support at 1.2645 and year to date lows at 1.2625.  If this zone is broken we could see a measured move lower into the 1.20 area.

GBPUSD Bank of England Minutes on Tap

The GBPUSD fell in early European trading after the CPI report came in lower than expected.  The pair attempted to bounce in New York trading but couldn’t find much momentum.   All eyes will be on the Bank of England Minutes early Wednesday for any indication of further bond purchases.  Support can be found at the 50 fib from the Jan lows at 1.5767 and the daily low at 1.5730.  A break of this support zone could open the door for a move down towards 1.56.  Daily resistance can be found at 1.5835.

AUDUSD Back Below the Decending Trend Line

NZDUSD New Weekly Lows

The NZDUSD and AUDUSD seems to be highly correlated these days.  The pair broke above trend line resistance early in the week only to drop back into the mix.  Strong daily support can be found at .75 .  the pair has respected this level repeatedly in the past.  Below .75 exposes last Octobers low at .7375.   Resistance begins at .7675.
