The level also corresponds with the 100-hour moving average near 1.0835 increasing the levels importance from a technical perspective. That level will be the barometer for both buyers and sellers today and going forward. Beware.
  • The USDJPY will tire yesterday and also above a key resistance area near 154.80. The momentum has continued in training today with the price moving above both its 200-hour moving average and 100-hour moving average at 155.54 and 155.68. Those moving averages will act as the key barometer/support today. Staying above is more bullish. Moving below is more bearish.
  • The GBPUSD moved above its 100-day moving average on Wednesday after the CPI/retail sales/year manufacturing index came in weaker than expectations. The price high this week stalled ahead of the next target near 1.2707 and has rotated back down yesterday and again today.
